Simon and Lynn Dodds set up their Fund in 2008 on the back of an existing partnership that LCF has with Deutsche Bank, Simon’s employer. Since then they have made over £200,000 in grants to charities working in and around London, and particularly in their home borough of Islington. Their focus is building confidence and hope for people who may feel disenfranchised. To this end, they have funded projects ranging from psychotherapy for young refugees, mentoring for victims of human trafficking, theatre programmes for vulnerable children, and capacity-building support for a charity providing vital services to homeless families.
Over the years, LCF have provided us with a number of interesting opportunities to support groups that we would never have been able to reach on our own.Simon & Lynn Dodds
