A LITTLE BIT MORE ABOUT

THE BARROWMAN FOUNDATION

Doug Barrowman

Doug Barrowman is a successful businessman and a philanthropist. Born in Glasgow, Doug came from an ordinary family background and witnessed many instances of social, religious and racial intolerance that often held back talented young people who, due to no fault of their own, were prevented from reaching their full potential. Having set up in business as a young man, invested in new businesses and worked with young people from all walks of life Doug has an insight into the struggles and challenges young people face and the important role education plays.

The Barrowman Foundation supports charities and efforts that empower young people to enjoy a good start in life and make the most of job and business opportunities.

OUR MISSION

We are committed to supporting young people from all walks of life to get access to good education, build life skills and receive support for their career or business venture. We also acknowledge that sport can define an individual’s destiny and we help those with a real talent for sport to reach their full potential.

ADVICE & HELP

The charities we work with offer excellent specialist advice and help. From Doug’s involvement in business and helping new start ups, we can offer young entrepreneurs further guidance on getting ahead of the game and will be launching help and advice on this website soon.

FUNDRAISING

Through organising fund raising events we increase the support the Foundation can give to the charities we champion. Our efforts are not just to increase funds but to heighten the profile of the good works being carried out and to encourage others to offer their support.
