About us and the charity
Gala on the Green (GOTG) is a black-tie charity ball with the sole purpose to raise much needed funds and awareness for youth charities. GOTG was established in 2011 in Australia by young professionals who come from a range of industries – from finance, to legal, to media, to medical – who all share a passion for wanting to make a difference in the community for people their own age who have been less fortunate. To date, it has raised over £70,000 in Australia for the youth homeless charity, Brisbane Youth Services.
Gala on the Green launched in London in 2015, proving a massive success having raised over £50,000 for the London youth charities. At the Gala, guests are invited to socialise with like-minded individuals and network in the beautiful green surroundings whilst being entertained throughout the evening with live music, a raffle, delicious food and flowing drinks.
With the support of Gala on the Green, Alone in London has continued to provide key specialist support such as early intervention work advising and educating young people on conflict resolution and resilience; providing emotional support in one-to-one sessions through it’s free counselling service; Mind Connect, delivering housing and benefits advice and family mediation.
Alone in London, a division of Depaul UK, supports 2,000 individuals each year and it’s work compliments Depaul UK’s London services for homeless young people. Working closely with Depaul, it’s emergency overnight accommodation service; Nightstop London and funders, over the last 2 years, Alone in London has been able to support a greater number of young people from diverse backgrounds and circumstances which has positioned the service in a strong position to move forward positively.
To ensure the charity can help even more individuals in need across London and the UK, Depaul UK welcomes Gala on the Green’s committed support to provide unrestricted funds to help services such as Nightstop, Endeavour and Get Up & Go! meet the specific needs of those groups of young people to enable them to prosper and live independently.
We have seen the benefits of how this money makes a difference. We hope you will join us in helping London’s homeless and at-risk youth.
