Earlier today, Nick Ferrari spoke to Big Kid Foundation - one of the charity's Global's Make Some Noise support - who help young people at risk of social exclusion and violence.

The Big Kid Foundation is a black-led charity, aiming to equip young people at risk of social exclusion and youth violence to take control of their lives, find, develop and act on their own potential.

Nick Ferrari asked 14-year-old Kiana Panah, who is supported by the charity: "What do you get from it? How does it help you?"

"I was suffering with mental health a little bit. It wasn't really a great time for me two years ago," she replied.

"When I started out, I didn't really have anyone to talk to, but as soon as I became involved with the youth club and the people that attend there as well, I felt at home.

"I've been going ever since and anytime I do need anyone to talk to, there is always that [network]."

Co-Founder Helen Marasha told LBC what donations would mean to the charity: "What your money will do is enable us to [take our] in-house councillor [from] part-time to full-time so that she can help more young people. It'll broaden our reach, it'll deepen our impact."

We also heard from MYTIME Young Carers charity, which has been supported by Global’s Make Some Noise charity in previous years.

The charity runs social activities for young carers to give them a break from their caring role.

Global’s Make Some Noise improves the lives of disadvantaged people in our communities by working with small charities across the UK. We believe everyone deserves to feel safe, feel well, feel included and feel prepared.

That’s why we work across four key areas: providing shelter and safety, supporting physical and mental health, preventing isolation and improving life skills.

This year alone, we’re supporting crucial services at 100 small charities, including food banks, mental health and domestic violence helplines, carer support, community projects and employment programmes.
