Alison Jacques Gallery is committed to supporting charities, funds and initiatives in the UK and around the world that are close to Alison's heart with an emphasis on helping to eradicate and educate about social injustice, discrimination and poverty. We recognise the privilege that we have and are committed to making long-lasting and impactful change by actively standing with and being an ally to those who enable education, who speak out, and support the fight for equality.
We are actively supporting the following organisations:
Magic Breakfast provides more than 48,000 children with a healthy breakfast every morning, identifying and reaching the pupils most at risk of hunger, enabling them to focus on learning and education.
In September 2018, Alison Jacques hosted 'Painting Can Change the World' a charitable initiative to fundraise through creativity. This exhibition sold over 100 paintings by school children, generously precided over by Sir Peter Blake, Joseph Kosuth and Gavin Turk, raising £12,000 for Magic Breakfast.
The former residence of Lee Miller and Roland Penrose, known as the 'home of the Surrealists', works to preserve the legacy of Surrealist and Modern Art in Sussex.
UK based charity Solace Women's Aid exists to end domestic violence against women and girls, providing support lines and groups, accommodation, therapeutic services, rape crisis service, and training and prevention work focused on empowerment.
Stop Hate UK works alongside local strategic partnerships to tackle Hate Crime and discrimination, originally established in direct response to the murder of Stephen Lawrence. Stop Learning Disability Hate Crime Line and Stop Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Hate Crime Line has since been developed to provide information, advice, support and advocacy for those experiencing discrimination.
