In 2024, we are supporting Noah’s Star, which works within the region’s neonatal units and children’s hospitals to supports the families of premature and sick babies and children.

Jo-Anne Shellum, founder of Noah’s Star said: “Noah’s Star aims to alleviate the challenges experienced by families with premature and sick children. We not only provide practical support but also emotional assistance and a sense of community, with a special emphasis on supporting the entire family, particularly siblings.”

Hortons’ Estate Limited is proud to be expanding the direct support it gives to local good causes via the Hortons Social Purpose Committee.

In 2024/5, we are providing support to eleven remarkable charities that are making a difference across three specific areas of need in our community.

These initiatives represent diverse and impactful work with which we are privileged to be a part. Each one plays a vital role in transforming lives, fostering inclusivity, and creating a brighter future for all.

Currently, six of these organisations – and the majority of our support – address hardship and exclusion. They offer assistance to some of the most deprived and hard-to-reach communities and individuals in Birmingham, offering rehabilitation and second chances to those facing crisis, and addressing homelessness at its roots.

We have also awarded three education-based grants: one aims to assist pre-school children in overcoming delayed development caused by the pandemic; another which engages young people in deprived areas of our community with high-quality performing arts and cultural education; and the third offers a bursary to help talented and motivated students overcome financial barriers in pursuit of their education.

Finally, two of our donations support arts-based projects. One counters the decline in music education for Birmingham’s underprivileged youth, promoting personal growth and social inclusion. The other creates opportunities for talented dancers with severe learning disabilities to showcase their creativity, inspire their peers, promote inclusive teaching practices, and challenge misconceptions through outreach programmes.

Please be aware that due to limited time and financial resources available, we regretfully cannot respond to any inbound enquiries or applications.
