What We Do…
The Mat Davis Foundation is a small Foundation, based in Warwick and inspired by a truly remarkable young man – Mat Davis.
Our vision is to be recognised within our local area as a support foundation that makes a difference to local people’s lives and that continues year after year.
Our mission statement is simple and comes from Mat’s wishes.
- The relief of young persons aged between 18 to 30 who have been diagnosed with cancer related illness within Warwickshire and the surrounding areas, by the provision of financial assistance and advice for respite care, travelling expenses and accommodation and the provision of counselling for distressed relatives to provide an environment where relatives and friends can discuss and come to terms with such illnesses.
- To act as a resource for young people up to the age of 18 in Warwickshire by providing advice and assistance and organising programmes of physical, educational and other activities as a means of:
(A) Advancing in life and helping young people by developing their skills, capacity and capabilities to enable them to participate in society as independent, mature and responsible individuals.
(B) Advancing education
(C) Providing recreational and leisure activity in the interest of social welfare for people living in the area of benefit who have need by reason of their youth, age, infirmity or disability, poverty or social and economic circumstances with a view to improving the conditions of life of such persons.
