Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Apprenticeship for young people for skills and work placements / volunteering into employment. Our project will facilitate mainly but not exclusive young people into employment or volunteering within our in house or commissioned skill acquisition through training, shadowing and work placements or volunteering into employment. The trainees or volunteers will then support our vulnerable/special need clients with practical support in varieties of services including gardening, cleaning of communal areas in communities, p. They acquire skills on the jobs through shadowing and tutoring and hands on tasks. Job search with facilitation to seek and secure jobs of various dimensions and areas (gardening, painting and decorating, minor repairs, carpentry, plumbing, electrical, cooking Assistants/chefs, Admin, customer services, hospitality, IT, Social media, computer coding, etc). We will establish and sustain relevant partnership with companies, organisations and employers to facilitate.

What we'll deliver:

  • Tackle anti-social behaviour through engagement of young people
  • Train young people to acquire new skills
  • Use skills acquired to improve the environment cleaning graffiti and tidying up open spaces
  • Support people with special needs with practical services

Why it's a great idea:

This project is a great idea because it will not only provide training and work placement to young people who would otherwise have no opportunities, it will also benefit those with special needs and the community at large. The young people whilst acquiring skills and gain work experience will able to give something back to the community providing gardening and tidy up of communal places where ever there is a need. They will also clean graffiti from public places and provide practical support to people with special needs in gardening, painting and decorating; generally improving areas for the benefit of the community.

Steps to get it done:

  • Promote project and recruit candidates
  • Take candidates into community to deliver project
  • Commence training, shadowing and volunteering

The project will seek to work with businesses, local authority and other employers to identify further work experience opportunities for the trainees. If further education is required, we will work with candidates to identify relevant training. Skills acquired will benefit not just the participants as they go on to find and secure employment, the community will benefit from skills acquisition.
