It’s always rewarding to be able to show our supporters exactly how their funding helps vulnerable young people, so we were delighted when a group of BBC Children in Need’s top funders paid us a visit last week.
BBC Children in Need has supported New Horizon's work for many years, specifically our under-19s Employment, Educations and Training (EET) Programme and evening services.
Representatives from some of the country’s biggest corporations were given a tour of the centre by the EET team - manager Janet and EET worker Troy - who explained how the money we’ve received has helped us secure work placements, apprenticeships, college places and training for hundreds of young people.
New Horizon’s Project Development Co-ordinator Stella stated that “the stability BBC Children in Need’s continued grant funding has given the EET Programme cannot be overestimated – some of the most marginalised and vulnerable young people have transformed their lives as a result of the programme’s interventions.” We hope the funders enjoyed their visit and look forward to seeing them again in future.
