Jack Petchey Foundation

5th Canvey Air Scout's Award Winners


Jack Petchy


Our vision is of a world where young people have high aspirations; the opportunity to develop their potential; the chance to be architects of their own future; to play a full part in society and to be valued and recognised for the positive things they achieve. We want to enable young people (aged 11 – 25 years in London and Essex), to achieve their potential by inspiring, investing in, developing and promoting activities that increase their personal, social, emotional and physical development. The Jack Petchey Foundation draws on the ideology, vision and values of its Patron Sir Jack Petchey CBE who epitomises the saying: “If you think you can, you can!”
