Get involved

Join us in supporting the arts aspirations of the young people who live in Teignbridge.

Our website is intended to provide a hub for all the activities of The Helen Foundation and keeping you informed about what’s going on, what we’ve done, what we are all about and, not least, how you can get involved. It’s as much about creating awareness, promoting the work of the Foundation as it is about raising finance.

There are lots of exciting ways in which you can get involved with The Helen Foundation, helping raise vital funds that will encourage and support other young people to develop their talents and pursue their ambitions as Helen was able to.

Feel part of the event – try Photoblab

As much as we’d love to be at every workshop or event we can’t be in two places at once or support every fundraiser (although we do try!)

Why not try Photoblab – a free app that allows others to share the experience of the event in sound and pictures. Take some photos, add some sound and share it with others. You can also choose to share your PhotoBlabs on Facebook, Twitter or by email. If you take a photoblab of a THF event, we’d love to here from you and include it in our gallery.

Keep up with our news and events on our Flickr page. And if you have taken some pictures at a THF event that you want to share with others, please email them to us – we’d love to include them in our gallery.


Fundraising for The Helen Foundation

You can raise money anywhere – at home, work, school or whilst socialising. By organising your own fundraising activity, you can make a contribution, however big or small, to helping young people realise their ambition. Our funding has already helped many start their journey of doing so, but there’s still a lot of work to do. And all of it is only achieved with your invaluable support.


Contact us

We want to hear from you too, and the contact us section of the site will provide a chance for you to get in touch and share your thoughts on our plans or let us know if you have any great ideas that you would like to see us try and make happen…
