Situation

We have been running our open access youth provision since 1998. Over recent years this has become harder to sustain, meaning that we have subsidised our provision from our annual reserves. We are at a crucial point now going forward to retain the charity. We are seeking funding to give us core costs to gain time to explore other avenues of sustainability and project development. We don't want to lose what we have worked on for 18 years, and know is still very much needed in our community.

Solution

By having funding to help cover core costs, this will enable us to continue our project further, and give time to explore other ways of sustaining what we have. We still have a real need by members to access our provision, to gain social skills, develop themselves and have better chances in the future. We are in a disadvantaged area and know some young people struggle to gain the support they need elsewhere. We want to give stability to the project and to our young members.
