A National Award Winning Charity

The Jack Hazeldine Foundation won Breakthrough Charity of the Year at the 2021 Third Sector Awards.  The accolade is in recognition of our unique outdoor learning space The JHF Orchard.

The Orchard is finished

The Orchard turns 1 and is kitted out with a teaching hut, tools shed, games shed, pagoda, fire-pits, vegetable patches, compost bins and paths, ready to offer more involved workshops and engagement sessions to our service users.

Expanding Our Offer

LEGO® Based Therapy, On-Tools Workshops for girls and Outdoor Learning sessions are added to the growing list of services offered by The JHF

Collaborative Community Working

In the 2021/2022 academic year, our partnerships included 5 local & national grant funders, 13 local organisations, 35 schools and ALPs, including every secondary school in North Somerset.  Our total outreach grew by 73% compared to the previous academic year.  Find out more about our partners and funders on our Partners page.

Breaking Ground At The Orchard

Construction and landscaping begins at the new JHF teaching garden outside of Clevedon.  The Orchard is 100% community built, involving dozens of local volunteers donating their tools, knowledge, time or services. The outdoor classroom continues to be community-led, involving schools and community groups as it provides a trusted place for young people with complex needs, as well as being a safe place to gather outdoors throughout Covid.

COVID-19 Pandemic

Whilst making our working situation harder, the pandemic also presented us with a greater challenge due to the impact it had on the very people we are here to support. Despite these challenges and throughout lockdown, the JHF never ceased its 250+ weekly hours of bespoke support. We continued to meet the needs of our community, thanks in large part to the flexibility and tenacity of our service users, their families, and our dedicated and growing team of mentors and tutors.

In 2020 the organisation more than doubles in size and outreach
