Situation

The fashion industry can be perceived as an elitist and competitive world. We believe that anyone with the talent and motivation to succeed should get a fair chance to get on in this exciting and fulfilling sector. We also believe that exploring creativity can help young people develop skills and attributes which will enable them to progress in many other career paths.

Solution

Over a period of 12 months, we will give disengaged young people life skills - confidence and self-esteem- and technical skills through workshops run by specialists for the young people to learn about the industry, an insight into options available to them and, through the FAD mentoring scheme, will develop a network of peer and professional contacts increasing their education/employment prospects and make them job-ready.
