The Foundation provides intensive photographic training and life skills to disadvantaged young people in order that they can move their lives forward and positively contribute to the society in which they live.
David Westhead said: "The charity continually works all over the world – from the townships of South Africa to the favelas of Rio, and throughout the UK, but I'm very excited to be bringing the course back to my home town for the inaugural Brighton & Hove course.
"We've already had fantastic support from local businesses and individuals, who have offered their facilities in order for the students to receive a broad range of learning experiences"
He continued: "The charity fundamentally believes that on-the-job training provides the best learning platform and that skilled young people who have a passion for learning regardless of their means and background, can positively carve out a career if they are given the right combination of training and support."
The students achieve an outstanding level of photographic ability. Their work has been exhibited in London, Brazil and South Africa and is regularly featured in the media, including the BBC, ITV, Evening Standard and The Guardian.
Students have gone on to work professionally as photographers, develop into assistant photographers, and support further courses as well as gain scholarships to universities, train to be accountants, and even develop their own businesses.
Brighton cafe, Lost in the Lanes
is supporting the young people by feeding them for seven days of the course with freshly made sandwiches.
Owner Natalie Demetriou added: "When a national supermarket chain dropped out at the last minute as the catering resource, we were delighted to step in and help out and support such a fantastic project.
"The students will be most welcome when they spend time with us in the cafe and we're looking forward to seeing the pictures.
"Brighton has a great community feel about it and we want to support initiatives such as the Wembley to Soweto Foundation."
The Brighton & Hove course runs from 19th April – 5th May.
