    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is the new way to raise money for a personal cause on JustGiving.

    Story

    We work with young people 16-25 years who are unemployed - including homeless, care leavers, no qualifications and mental health issues.

    We aim to tackle these issues, promote wellbeing and work towards a brighter future, through participation in holistic learning. This includes team building activities, outdoor residentials, community projects, team challenges and work placements.

    The young people we work with increase confidence, self belief and motivation for life through participation in the projects. We are creating a sense of well being and providing opportunities for progression to further education, training or employment.

    With funding cuts, we are having to cut back some of our much needed provision, we need help to keep this life changing work going.

    We would appreciate if you could donate and share to support us.
