Located in Goldstone Street, Hove, the Starr Trust aims to help young people attain their full potential in sport, education and art.

According to a spokesman, Starr Trust is an independent family-run charity.
All the income that we get is fully funded by the community fundraising and events as well as generous donations from individuals and corporates.
We have come up with a network of professionals and mentors who make it possible for the youngsters to get skill sharing as well as training opportunities.
“Our aim is to promote independent thinking, social conscience as well as entrepreneurship in the young people through all events and activities.
We are in the school of thought that young people should be supported to attain their potential to the fullest, at which point they grow as individuals who are positively impacting their community and are also recognized for their achievements.
