Wyn River Supports

As a new company, we do not have the resources on day 1 to be particularly philanthropic, but we do aspire to help others in need, as our associates have done personally in the past.

There are a number of worthy causes, but we are drawn towards children and sport in the UK and in our region, inspired by the London 2012 Olympics.  We plan to share some of the good ideas from the UK charities with committed people in Central and Eastern Europe and across the Caucasus, Central Asia and Africa to encourage further international and local support for these causes.

It includes the Women’s Sport Trust, which like Wyn River, launched in 2013.

Hope and Homes for Children is an international charity working across Central and Eastern Europe and Africa to ensure that all children have the chance to grow up in the love of a family. They are leading experts in closing children's institutions, rehousing children into family homes and reforming childcare systems.

 

Wooden Spoon, founded in 1983, is dedicated to helping disadvantaged children and young people across the British Isles live happier, richer lives. They partner with the UK rugby community, receiving invaluable support for their activities and the opportunity to raise awareness of the work they do. In doing so, Wooden Spoon involves some of rugby's top sporting role models in making a difference in the lives of young people in need.

Founded in 2004 Access Sport is a dynamic UK charity whose mission is to give more children, particularly in disadvantaged areas, access to a wide range of quality local sport.  They harness the proven power of sport to tackle social exclusion, inactivity and obesity in areas where help is most needed. They achieve this through empowering the inspirational community volunteers who set up and run local sports clubs with cash, expert advice and networking to help create thriving clubs which get more people positively engaged.

 

It provides scholarships/grants to aspiring sportswomen, fund research and public awareness campaigns, and support anything else that will enable the progression of women’s sport in the UK.

Women’s Sport Trust aims to encourage greater engagement with women’s sport through participation, spectatorship and media coverage whilst creating a platform for a diverse range of role models to emerge in women’s sport in the UK.
