Welcome to Spotlight UK

Our Mission and Objectives of Spotlight UK

We work towards our objectives in every programme we run, hoping to make the world a better place and support those who need it most.
We seek to relieve the needs of children and young people, their families and carers, who are suffering from a life-limiting condition or mental or physical disability by providing equipment, activities, and respite to advance their quality and condition of life.

How we do this:  

  • Providing events, socials, free activities and treats for young people who have a parent or sibling with a disability or life-limiting condition.
  • Run inclusive activities  
  • Support anxious young people with our body positive campaign  
  • Send care packages for those struggling with their mental health
To provide recreational and leisure time activities in the interests of social welfare for people who need because of their youth, age, infirmity or disability, poverty or social and economic circumstances to improve such persons' conditions of life.
Additionally, to promote social inclusion for the public benefit by preventing people from becoming socially excluded, relieving the needs of those people who are socially excluded and assisting them to integrate into society.

For this clause, ‘socially excluded’ means being excluded from society, or parts of society, as a result of one or more of the following factors:  

  • Unemployment 
  • Financial hardship 
  • Youth or old age 
  • Ill health (physical or mental) 
  • Discrimination on the grounds of sex, race, disability, ethnic origin, religion, belief, creed, sexual orientation or gender reassignment 
  • Poor educational or skills attainment 
  • Relationship and family breakdown 
  • Poor housing (that is, housing that does not meet basic habitable standards 
  • By providing emotional and practical support and advice, activities and befriending activities. 
To relieve financial hardship by providing such persons with equipment and food parcels that they could not otherwise afford through lack of means.

How we do this:

  • Donations of items such as clothes, beds, toys 
  • Christmas Toy Appeal 
  • Birthday toys for those who cannot afford them
