The Jamal Edwards Self Belief Trust was set up by his family to support the causes that mattered most to Jamal – combatting homelessness, supporting people with mental health issues and providing young people with essential life skills.
All funds raised from Tuesday’s event will be going to support these causes with the main focus being to give young people the opportunity to thrive in the media industry.
Carrying on the work that Jamal started, and in partnership with youth homelessness charity Centrepoint, the Trust is developing a scholarship programme and back-to-work scheme for young people at risk of homelessness.
It will develop careers and opportunities in the media and secure accommodation to help young people move away from homelessness for good.

His heartbroken mother, Brenda, described him as ‘a beautiful and selfless person’ in a statement read to the inquest. Earlier this year she said she wanted his death to ‘help drive more conversation about the unpredictability of recreational drugs’.
Mr Edwards was awarded an MBE in 2014 for his services to music and he was an ambassador for the Prince’s Trust.
In a statement read to the hearing, Brenda Edwards said: ‘Jamal was a beautiful and selfless person.

‘Since growing up with his family in Acton he made it his personal mission to open doors for others to walk through.
‘To help people through life, to love and to laugh. And most importantly, to just make people happy.’
She added: ‘Jamal helped so many, working tirelessly to give a platform to people.
‘His charitable work stretched near and far, from working at homeless shelters to giving back to his roots in St Vincent and the Grenadines.
‘We are so proud of everything Jamal achieved over the course of his 31 years and how he impacted others’ lives. We miss him so much.’
