We have been able to make a grant of £20,000 to Kids City's Interjunction project. This is a recent project, begun in 2013. to support NEET young people into work through volunteering. It connects NEET young people with local charities and businesses for 36 hours of structured volunteering. The beneficiaries gain qualifications, confidence and experience in a small, local workplace, make new networks and use these to further their search for work. The beneficiary organisations receive valuable support from the volunteers and establish a volunteering programme for the future.
