​#WorkItOut - Our new programme for Young People

We are working in partnership with Business in the Community which will provide a mentor for each young person on their journey to employment, training or education. ​This is an innovative programme which will see our young people aged 16-25 take the lead in delivery.

News of the grant came to us when an ‘undercover’ National Lottery player came to learn more about the work we are doing at our Francis Street project. Check out the big surprise moment here – its very emotional

“I am delighted to announce these grants under the Empowering Young People programme and I want to say thanks to all the National Lottery players who have helped make this possible.

“We want to fund great projects that put young people in the lead in increasing their skills and confidence, and support them to have stronger relationships so they can cope better with the challenges they face and reach their potential.
