We have awarded £36,510 over two years to Rising Stars CIC. This is a new social enterprise that aims to assist personal development, improve employability and support young people into education or employment through Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) training. This grant enables weekly training for young men and women based at Blackfriars Settlement with one to one mentoring and employment advice delivered during and in between sessions.
