Forward 4 Work is an employment preparation project based in Birmingham for people with disabilities throughout the West Midlands. We are very proud to help support this wonderful project with a bursary which will help the 16 to 25 year olds with the initial costs of purchasing essential items before receiving their first wage, things like a bus pass, suitable clothing and footwear or a mobile phone for personal safety.
Benmore Play Project based in Birmingham caters for children from 4 to 13 years old, providing after school care and activities during the school holidays –an essential facility for working parents. Unfortunately it is about to close much to everyone’s dismay, but staff wanted the children to leave with a positive experience and asked if we could help with the cost of a 3 day trip to Woodlands Educational Outdoor Centre. It will be the first time many of the children have been away from home with or without their parents – needless to say they are all very much looking forward to the trip.
