Do you know any British Airways staff?

20th June 2016

British Airways Flying Start, in partnership with Comic Relief, have shortlisted just five charities in the UK to share £200k, with awards ranging from £10k to £100k. METRO is one of those five charities!


All BA staff will vote between now and 1st July on how to allocate the awards. So if you know any BA staff, please ask them to put METRO at the top of their list.


Whichever level of award we receive the funds will go to our Juice project, supporting LGBT young people who feel confused or unsupported and may struggle with issues related to alcohol consumption. Thank you!

David - Counselling

Outstanding people. Outstanding service. Outstanding counselling. Truly something that has allowed me to turn my life around.

Simon - Mentoring

By discussing things at such an intimate level with my mentor, I really came face to face with some of the reasons why I was taking chances before.

Joe - Mentoring

The programme had such an impact on my life that I decided to come on board as a volunteer mentor!

Abimbola- First Point

It has been a long time since I felt that someone actually listened to me.

Peter- First Point

I felt so relieved to have a named First Point worker who I can call if I need to be referred to a particular service.

Michael - Counselling

I gained a huge amount of help from the counselling service and would like to thank the service for offering so much support.

Ebere - First Point

I wish this service was around when I was newly diagnosed. I felt my world had fallen apart around me and I didn't know which way to turn for support. You are offering a very valuable service.

Kwasi - Mentoring

During the 6 month programme, I developed a close relationship with my mentor. Knowing that I would have to talk to him honestly about what I did in the previous 2 weeks somehow forced me to be safe every time I had an encounter.

Joan - First Point

Thank you so much for taking time to listen to me and truly understand how I am feeling. This is the only appointment I've had regarding HIV that didnít feel rushed.

Sarah - Counselling

The help and understanding I experienced from everyone I came into contact with whilst using the Metroís services was amazing.

METRO is always looking for talented people of all backgrounds for a variety of interesting roles, as employees and volunteers.
Support comes in many forms, money is one of them! We'd very much appreciate a donation to help us continue our work.
