Meet Our Patron
We are thrilled to have the Lord-Lieutenant of Greater London, Sir Kenneth Olisa OBE, as the Patron of BIGKID Foundation!
We are excited to work with the Lord-Lieutenant, whose impressive portfolio of work includes a position on the board at Reuters, ownership of two merchant banks, and a multitude of philanthropic endeavours. Sir Olisa was also awarded his knighthood in the Queen's New Year's Honours List 2018.
Sir Olisa is an advocate of social inclusion and, as the Lord-Lieutenant of Greater London, is responsible for the promotion of civic, commercial, voluntary, and social activities within London. In his role as Lord-Lieutenant, Sir Olisa's mission is 'to support the Monarch and the Royal Family in Greater London, and in addition, be a bridge-builder, connecting individuals, organizations and social networks, to enhance Londoners' sense of belonging and thus increase social inclusion within the capital.' We believe this aligns with our mission to end social exclusion and youth violence among young people in South London.
We are incredibly grateful to have Sir Olisa OBE as our Patron and are thrilled to be sharing our goals with him to help foster a sense of belonging among young people across London.
