Persimmon Homes Building Futures – Please support Swansea MAD!

We are thrilled that Swansea MAD is in the running to win a share of a £1million Persimmon Homes Building Futures fund aimed at supporting children and young people across the UK. 

The Persimmon Homes Building Futures fund will make awards of £100,000, £50,000 or £20,000 to the finalists with the most online votes. 

Swansea MAD needs your support to win an award and secure funding for our work with children and young people!

Swansea MAD are a grassroots youth charity, based in the heart of Swansea. We provide an inclusive safe space for young people to access the creative arts, education, advocacy, training, campaigning activities and projects to bring fairness and belonging. 

Winning an award would mean that we could widen access to the arts for young people and enable them to progress, achieve, belong, make new friends, learn new instruments, join new bands, start gigging, become DJs and have fun. 

Voting could not be simpler. Just visit, select Swansea Music Art Digital and then click the orange “Submit Vote” button. 

Online voting opened on Monday 11th October and runs until midnight on Friday 19th November. You can vote once every 24 hour period. This is determined by your IP address, so if two people are using the same network, only one vote will count – voting on your phone using 4G is a good idea. 

Building Futures is delivered through the Persimmon Charitable Foundation in partnership with Team GB, the British Olympic Association.
