Embercombe is a registered charity that improves people’s lives and transforms communities. Our work would not be possible without the generous support that so many people provide in so many ways, including the thousands of hours of time that people give voluntarily each year and the many friends and supporters who help us financially. Embercombe came into being thanks to an act of amazing generosity and since then it has continued to rely on the gifts of many hundreds of people in order to flourish and grow. We invite you to make a donation now to help us meet the costs of delivering our life-changing work.

Become part of the Catalyst Pay-it-Forward Community

Support the next generation of young people to step into their power as authentic leaders and changemakers.

The Catalyst Course is a cutting edge 5-day residential programme equipping young adults with authentic leadership and change agent skills, and the confidence, courage and conviction they need to navigate the challenges of entering adulthood in this changing world.

Catalyst runs three times a year, with up to 28 young people attending each time.

My ability to work and collaborate with colleagues improved dramatically after participating in the Catalyst Course. The skills I have gained in self-confidence I have applied to my life and work by taking leadership in a youth-led community project with national impact.”

Charlie Burls, Catalyst Attendee

Our dream is that Catalyst is accessible and affordable for all. The full cost of a place on Catalyst is out of reach for most young people.

With the help of Catalyst Alumni and Friends of Catalyst we are building a pay-it-forward community bursary fund. We have already received pledges from Catalyst Alumni of over £2300 to kick-start the process.

We know that the demand for affordable places continues to rise and this is a funding model that will sustain Catalyst into the future without public funding. Our target is that by 2017 a place on Catalyst becomes a gift that the community of people who have done Catalyst finance and run for the next generation of people participating.
