The Deo Duce Foundation was formally established in 2020 as a charitable collaboration between past pupils of the Salvatorian College and Old Salvatorians Football Club.

Our aims are focused around the educational and well-being needs of young people aged typically 25 or under in the Harrow area, and we support a variety of projects to help them achieve their potential.

The Deo Duce Foundation has been established to support:

Education

DDF recognises that education provides the foundation for the future success of young people, but there are times when school budgets do not allow the purchase of equipment or obtain services that would provide motivational insights into the world of work.

Mental health

The negative impact of peer comparison, social media and changes to family situations on the mental well-being of young people, and boys in particular, has been highlighted in recent years. This may become even more evident after the loss of so much education and friendship time due to the Covid-19 lockdown.

Training

Young people need, more than ever, to be able to adapt to a fast-changing world and workplace. Learning does not stop after school and new skills may be needed, especially for those seeking work.

Supporting young people to achieve

The Deo Duce Foundation was established on the premise that all young people deserve the same educational opportunities to fulfil their potential and succeed.

We invite applications for funding from schools, social enterprises and extra curricular clubs including sports and the arts – anything which supports the education, well-being or skills development of young people, which will benefit the local and wider communities in the short and long term.
