what you can do to support us

The people who we work with are often held back by a range of barriers to employment.


With your support we can transform the lives of local people who lack skills, experience or qualifications, have a history of substance misuse, a criminal record, low self-esteem, low confidence or mental health problems.

In our last financial year (Sept 2019-2020) 22% of our income came through grant funding.

Over the next three years a similar contribution towards our core costs would help grow the depth and breadth of our support to reduce disadvantage for those furthest from employment and increase our financial resilience through engaging our learners in the development of our enterprise village.
