Creating a brighter future for the next generation

We believe it is vital that our children are provided with enough opportunities to enable them to succeed and develop their potential.

Unfortunately, due to factors such as social and economic disadvantage, some young people in today's society suffer from lack of equality.

Throughout the years, prevention of poverty has become part of our mission.

Through the local community partnerships of our branches and the Hays Travel Foundation we offer financial support to empower those in, or at risk of, poverty, in order to create a brighter tomorrow for the next generation.

"Hays Travel Foundation has supported and assisted Westwood on a couple of occasions, during the Covid period and afterwards in our work with disadvantaged families by making generous grant awards to us."

– Neil Morris, Westwood 2015

"The funding has made it possible to support thousands of families in the North East with emergency food through the cost of living crisis, for which we and they are extremely grateful."

– Juliet Sanders, Feeding Families
