Inflexion raises £250,000 for The Roundhouse

On Saturday 11th July, a group of 15 Inflexion colleagues walked 36 miles in 24 hours ‘Round the Houses’ to raise money for The Roundhouse. Through the generosity of Inflexion’s valued network, the team raised over £250,000.

The Roundhouse is a charity with an objective to provide ‘space to create’ for 11 to 25 year olds. The Roundhouse has a particular focus on those young people who have been excluded, marginalised or disadvantaged by society and work to enable them to find pathways back into education, work or simply to enjoy a wider cultural life. It is anticipated that soon there will be two million young people who will be unemployed as a direct result of Covid-19.  Many were disadvantaged before the pandemic, and need support now more than ever.

The Inflexion Foundation has already provided support to those impacted by the coronavirus pandemic this year. In April, The Inflexion Foundation announced that it was donating £2.25m to charities providing support at this time including  £2 million to the National Emergencies Trust and £250,000 to Turn2Us. The Inflexion Foundation also supported the National Tutoring Programme online pilot last month, which was launched as part of the Government’s plans to support pupils in the next academic year and beyond.
