Continued support for the Hidden Communities Project

August 2020

– In 2019 The Kentown Wizard Foundation gifted £1 million to Dreams Come True in order to extend the charity’s reach to seriously ill children and young people in areas of deprivation.

With this grant, Dreams Come True created the “Hidden Communities Programme” to focus on children and young people from disadvantaged backgrounds across Scotland, the Midlands and the Northwest. 2 years on and the charity has successfully increased its impact in those areas with plans to expand into other areas identified as the most deprived communities according to the Index of Mass Deprivation.

The guiding principle of Dreams Come True is that the opportunity to have a dream fulfilled should be open to all. With this in mind, an additional grant has been gifted to Dreams Come True in order to continue the success of the Hidden Communities Programme and fulfil more dreams within the community.

Richard Ashton, Chief Executive of Dreams Come True, said: “We look forward to continuing our relationship with The Kentown Wizard Foundation, working together to positively impact the lives of more young people who have life-limiting medical conditions and are living in some of the most deprived and hard-to-reach communities in the country.”
