Do something special this Christmas. Support The Lowry to work with teenage parents and their children in Salford.


Salford has one of the highest teenage birth rates in the UK. Young parents can struggle with education, money and housing, even before new parent responsibilities. Many young parents struggle with confidence and low self-esteem.

Funds raised in The Lowry’s Christmas appeal will fund a year-long project with two teenage parent groups in Salford. This story-telling and creative play-based project will support young parents and their children to fall in love with storytelling, music and visual arts, improving their confidence and encouraging positive relationships. 


Help us reach our target of Target £15,000. Any funds raised over this will be directed towards essential costs of the Learning & Engagement team to enable this project to happen, and fund sustainability of the project so we can continue to work with the young people and their children into the future.


The Lowry Centre Trust is a registered charity no. 1053962.


The charity

The Lowry is a cross-arts organisation and registered charity in Salford (no. 1053962). We welcome visitors to our three theatres, gallery spaces and we are also home to the UK's public collection of work by LS Lowry. Central to our vision is our commitment to our local communities in Salford, with particular focus on disadvantaged or marginalised young people and each year The Lowry engages with over 35,000 people from our communities through ground-breaking participation, learning and vocational training programmes which harnesses the arts to discover talents, improve skills, and boost confidence. Through our Learning and Engagement programme we aim to:

  • Change the lives of children and young people who are vulnerable or 'at-risk' e.g. Young Carers, Children in Care, Young Parents and those experiencing homeslessness, by raising their self-esteem and creative skills development
  • Provide real routes into training or employment for those who are, or at risk of becoming NEET (not in education, employment or training)
  • To discover, support and develop emerging artists and theatre-makers
  • To continue to bring the very best in world-class visual and performing arts to our regions
  • Use the arts as a powerful tool to inspire people to shape their lives and the lives of people around them for the better

Registered charity (no. 1053962).

Our wonderful partners

Our wonderful partners - who support us with cash and services - make it possible for us to pass EVERY PENNY raised from your fundraising efforts and generous donations to our charities, including Gift Aid. Of course, we would be unable to do so without them.

What makes us wonderful?

We recognise the selfless commitment made by fundraisers who train for months to run marathons, face their fears by jumping out of aeroplanes or open their homes to the community for charity bakes and coffee mornings. We believe the charities they support should receive EVERY PENNY from their fundraising efforts.

We also believe that Gift Aid (a scheme enabling charities to reclaim tax on donations made by UK taxpayers) should be directed IN FULL to the charities. This is why the Wonderful Organisation does not generate profit (or even cover costs) by deducting money from fundraisers' sponsors or Gift Aid contributions.

We are a non-profit organisation funded entirely by like-minded, philanthropic businesses. That's what makes us wonderful!
