There are lots of ways to get involved and support a brighter future for our local young people. We organise regular fundraising and specific appeals to support specific projects but we need just as much In Kind Support as we do financial support! Many of our partner school request support in planned workshops and sessions in which the community engage with young people to share experiences, knowledge and expertise and in some cases, work experience and then a job!
But as much as young people all learn differently – we all give differently!
