Our appeal to raise funds to help create a better future for young people has reached its target of £5,000!
Thanks to the generosity of many individuals and organisations we raised £4,882.50 online and a further £307 in off-donations, making a total of £5,190.
We will use this funding, along with funds we raise from applications to trusts and foundations, to develop proposals for better opportunities for young people who do not achieve five ‘good’ GCSEs. We will look at the strengths and weaknesses of the options currently available to them (further education, apprenticeships and employment) and work with young people and education professionals to enhance the range and quality of opportunities.
The project is scheduled to begin in April 2017, with the duration of the project depending on funding raised. Sign up to your free monthly newsletter to keep up to date with progress.
