We are delighted to announce our sports-themed employability programmes for NEET young people in Ladywood and Washwood Heath have been secured for the next three years through funding from Comic Relief. We have also expanded into a new area of Birmingham (Sparkbrook) with support from The Henry Smith Charity and Raise Your Hands. These grants will provide funding of £185,000 for direct charitable delivery over the next three years.
In the last year, our programmes helped over 1,000 young people re-engage with education, employment, and training. The funding secured will help us continue to reach the most socially excluded young people in Birmingham to help them create a better future for themselves and unlock their true potential.
