It has been an exciting year of growth for us. As well as record numbers of delivery, we launched a fourth Hub in the Midlands to expand our presence across the UK and secured funding from the Careers and Enterprise company, the Mercers Company and the CareTech Foundation to scale up delivery.
Embedding youth voice has been another priority for us through the launch of our new Youth Advisory Board (YAB) and Ambassador network across the UK. These young people are regularly consulted and involved in all aspects of the Foundation’s work, from input into the development of new projects, to active involvement in the recruitment and selection of new Board members.
COVID-19 has had a huge impact on our delivery but it has taught us that as an organisation we can respond to a crisis quickly and innovate our programme delivery to protect opportunities. You can read more about how we responded in our report, along with key impact data and case studies from a range of young people and supporters.
Collaboration is another key focus for us as we look ahead to the next year. The Impact Report sets out some of our key partnerships and how important these are to supporting more young people across the UK.
