The Karlsson Játiva Charitable Foundation was set up in 2016 and is a registered charity in England and Wales. It is a philanthropic institution which was established with two main objectives in mind: a) The advancement of the art of music and the education of the public in the same in the United Kingdom, Sweden and other countries across Europe: and b) The relief of poverty, distress and hardship and the promotion of education, health and welfare or any other exclusively charitable object in Latin America. Its philosophy is to fund partners who have the potential to deliver structural change over the long term improving the opportunities for those who otherwise might not be able to fulfil their potential. With respect to its music objective, it provides funding directly to various organisations in the United Kingdom under the Signatur umbrella.

The Positive Youth Foundation provides opportunities for young people to reach their full potential.

We believe that every young person has the right to achieve, and base our work upon a philosophy of mutual respect. Our grass-roots research and delivery enables us to support young people and advocate on behalf of the youth and community sector. We work with like-minded organisations to help build capacity and resource. Our strap-line says it all. we work with young people, taking them beyond engagement and towards positive lifestyle choices. We aim to raise aspirations – so we use creative education, mentoring and bespoke programmes to work with young people and partners who are most in need of our support.
