young_people.jpgThe Charity Sub-Committee have identified and agreed what the focus of our future charitable giving should be.

There are significant numbers of young disadvantaged people in the area who have often been brought up in care and are not able to get the help needed to support them into training and the workplace. When they are 19 years old, Government funding is virtually non-existent and many of these young people are finding themselves on the scrapheap before they have even begun their working lives.

We wish to address this by giving opportunities for disadvantaged young people to have the appropriate training and support so that they can eventually take care of themselves both personally and financially. We have established an excellent relationship with Young Devon who would very much like to work with us and are able to provide significant opportunities to help individual young people get on the right track for the rest of their lives. Beneficiaries will have resided within 25 miles of Exeter for at least the last 3 years and be aged between 16 & 25.
