Our Partnerships

Beyond The London Marathon Charitable Trust’s grant programmes, we have been working with a range of partners to act on our commitments. You can read about a few of the highlights in the boxes below:

  • Since 2018, we have been working in partnership with Blueprint for All (formerly the Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust) on a range of programmes and initiatives to inspire young people across the UK. Among other opportunities, our partnership has enabled young architecture students to design mile markers for the London Marathon for a number of years – and a new design will be featured at the 2022 event.

  • Since 2019, we have been working in partnership with AKD Solutions, a learning and development consultancy, to provide an inclusive leadership programme for our senior leaders and a continuous learning journey for all staff in relation to diversity, equity and inclusion. We continue to work closely with AKD on a number of fronts.
  • Since 2020 we have been working with a number of key stakeholders in the running community through our Inclusion Advisory Group to ensure we make our events as inclusive as possible. Our incredible group is made up of a range of black and ethnically diverse leaders in the running community. For more information on the work the group is doing and how it is progressing please check out Tasha Thompson’s blog.
  • In 2021 we become involved with Dr Mark Prince OBE and the Kiyan Prince Foundation to inspire our staff and support schools to access the Foundation’s future leader’s programme. We will continue to work with Mark and his team to amplify his message of hope and inspiration to support young people to be the best possible versions of themselves. 
  • This year we also started working with a consortium of youth organisations called the Hope Collective. Formed as a partnership collaboration to support the 20th anniversary of the Damilola Taylor tragedy in 2020, the primary objective of the Hope Collective is to develop a campaign that is inspired by the kind of young person Damilola represented: a young boy full of aspiration and ambition; a young boy who had written about his hope for the world shortly before his premature death. The Hope Collective brings together youth organisations, justice intervention and care specialists, businesses and statutory bodies to join together and promote the same cause, providing young people with a platform to articulate their vision of a brighter future and influence decision-makers, addressing key issues such as poverty and violence.
