Livewire is a totally self-funding charity, running on grants and donations to cover it’s annual running cost of c.£200k. Demand for our services, particulary mental well-being, is growing all the time. We are determined to help as many young people as we can.

If you’re an organisation interested in finding a worthy cause for your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) programme, there is no more visible project for changing young lives in the South West than Livewire Youth Project. If you’re a private individual, the same applies and your donations are welcome and invaluable.

You’ll be able to see and measure the results of your contributions, be they financial or in another form – take a look at our stories and you’ll see a small sample of the incredible outcomes we’ve been delivering for over 30 years. If your interest is specifically CSR, please contact Andy Rance at or 01752 843570.

If you’re a member of the local community and want to see our young people engaged in constructive activity, you can either donate via PayPal button on the top right of our website or at the bottom of this page, or contact us for alternative methods.
