Welcome to AWBS philanthropy 

AWBS has a long tradition of supporting local charities and we look forward to a packed calendar of events to support our 2021/2022 selected charities.  AWBS are proud to be supporting our three wonderful charities:

Kevin Cruise Foundation
Aik Saath
Young People with Dementia

The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead is rich in culture and heritage and well served by multiple venues such as Theatre Royal Windsor.  However, it is also a borough of great diversity and, despite projects and efforts from our local arts centres, The Kevin Cruise Foundation has identified a need for further exposure to the performing arts, particularly for children from disadvantaged backgrounds.

Offering complimentary theatre and pantomime tickets to children, families, carers, schools and charity volunteers; ideally, this would include cast ‘meet and greets’, back and on-stage opportunities.  This full theatrical experience opens a door to the world of arts and culture.

"Aik Saath" mean "Together As One" in Hindi, Punjabi and Urdu and embody the ethos of the charity. They believe in working together for positive social change and in empowering young people to make their communities safer and stronger places. 
They are committed to working with young people to improve their lives, by supporting them to deal with their conflicts and helping them to value diversity. 
Slough Young Carers have children as young as 5 who are caring for parents or siblings. Aik Saath are currently delivering weekly sessions for young carers online for children aged 5 to 10 and for young people 11 to 19 (or up to 25 with SEN/disabilities) and have recently launched a monthly session for parents.

Younger People with Dementia (Berkshire) was formed in 2012 and has grown year on year in both the numbers of the carers that it supports and those diagnosed with young onset dementia who attend appropriate weekday workshops across East and West Berkshire, helping them to live better with dementia. 
Traditional support services provided for those with dementia are designed to meet the needs and expected therapeutic outcomes of older adults and subsequently, access to activities appropriate for younger adults with dementia continues to be limited locally, regionally and nationally. The YPWD model encourages carer respite throughout the working week, giving all carers the chance to take a break.



In addition AWBS will continue to support the Runnymede Foodbank with monthly collections at our General Meeting.
