Thank you to all of our amazing donors who helped us reach our fundraising target of £12,000! We are over the moon! 🎉

For anyone who didn't get a chance to donate and is keen to support our work young women, trans and non-binary youth, you still can as The Childhood Trust has extended the campaign for seven days.


In 2020, thanks to your incredible generosity, Girls Rock London survived the first year of the devastating pandemic and successfully adapted our activities to support young people’s well-being over the summer holidays. We designed a musical care package and digital resources which were sent weekly to 100 young women, trans and non-binary youth aged 11 to 16 across the UK.

Now, as we begin to emerge, Girls Rock London needs your help more than ever to reconnect and support young people in our community.

This year we will deliver positive, healing-centred music-making activities for young women and trans youth aged 11-16, to support them to move forward from an incredibly challenging year. We are aiming to safely deliver an in-person summer camp AND send our musical care packages to 200 young people - double the number we reached last year.

We want to increase access for girls and trans youth who face barriers to participation, ensuring the power of music is available to everyone - at a time when young people need safe spaces to create and play.

To help fund this work, we are aiming to raise £6,000 in online donations in just 7 days – and if we hit our target the money will be DOUBLED by The Childhood Trust and our pledge donors, meaning we will raise a total of £12,000!

Feedback about our 2020 programme:

The project has been sooooo fun and creative.

I never thought I’d enjoy making music but GRL has shown me how great it is!

I liked the playlists and how they kept in touch with us each week and gave us new things to do each time.

I love what GRL is and its morals and values; I’ve never seen an organisation/programme strive to be so inclusive. I’m literally in awe.

Dear Girls Rock Team, I can't thank you enough for the fantastic work you are doing. Our daughter suffers from anxiety and panic attacks. Her confidence to meet young people is very low especially during lock down. She was very apprehensive to take part in the Zoom call but did manage it in the end. She was so happy after the event and would have liked to do it more. Her group had praised her art work and for days she kept mentioning how much it had meant to her.

Thank you for making GRL happen this year. My daughter found it very exciting to receive the parcel and handbook - and it gave her projects to focus on throughout the summer. I was particularly impressed that the parcel contained absolutely everything the participants might need - so nobody needed to find a pencil or sharpener or stamp or thread at home - I thought this embodied the inclusivity of GRL.
