Land Securities Fund

Immediate Theatre start off the New Year in the right way – with a £4,950 Grant from The Land Securities Trust, administered through The London Community Foundation.

The grant will assist Immediate Theatre in developing a unique programme for supporting young girls who are at risk of being (or who have been) victims of sexual assault.

The grant was celebrated by a visit to Immediate Theatre in Hackney by senior staff of Land Securities and Rehana Reid, Programme Manager of the London Community Foundation, who administered the grant process.

Philip Barron, Corporate Responsibility Coordinator for Land Securities, London, said:

“We were impressed by the innovative approach of Immediate Theatre in tackling complex social problems for young people in Hackney and therefore selected their project working with vulnerable young girls for funding through the Land Securities grants programme.  The project aligns to our objectives in supporting young people not in education, employment or training (NEETs). The charity’s approach using drama has proven to be effective in reaching out to teenagers who need support in making better life choices.”

Land Securities have chosen the project to be featured in their Company Newsletter.
