Charity info

“The Starr Trust has one main objective – to champion young people and help them achieve their goals.  We are a family charity based in Hove who support young people in need aged 10 –18 (living in the BN postal code region) in sports, arts and education, by giving them a helping hand to achieve their goals at a time when they really need it.  We believe in a world in which young people are supported to achieve their full potential; where they flourish as individuals whilst making a positive contribution to their community… and in turn are recognised for their achievements.”
