THE LOUIS ROSS FOUNDATION


The Louis Ross Foundation has been established to help young people facing difficulties and to remember and reflect Louis’s compassion and kindness and his ability to unite people through friendship.

The foundation is broad in its aims but specifically focuses on helping young people by providing grants and services.

Causes we have so far supported include: Bournemouth’s Sleepsafe charity for homeless people; Poole Young Carers Charity; Beaucroft Foundation School in Wimborne; the Elizabeth Foundation; Mosaic; Stanley’s HydroHouse; a transport bursary for a Poole teenager; Make-A-Wish; Poole-based Diverse Abilities’ Coping with CHAOS and Langside School; Wagtails Swimming Club in Wimborne; The Bus Shelter Dorset; Horserenity in Spetisbury; Ashley’s Birthday Bank; Downton4Family; and Fernheath Play. 

As every donation makes a difference, we hope to support other causes in the future.
