Another step forward for Your Own Place. Last year our supporters generously raised money through our crowdfunding campaign. Combined with The Tudor Trust funding we employed Alex to support young people into work. And now Children in Need funding means that Alex goes full time and we’re on the way! There are loads of good providers across Norfolk supporting young people furthest from work. And we want to work with them so that our young people have equality of access to all these great services. However, our ambitions go further than that. You’ll know that social impact is everything and we need to maximise it. So whilst we want to support young people into work, we want some of those young people to have very real work experiences as our Peer Trainers. With all this lovely funding we will be developing the Peer Youth Worker Training Academy. An aspirational eight-week programme covering the practicalities of youth work as well as cutting edge engagement techniques will be available to young people working with Alex. They will have opportunities to volunteer and even work on our Tenancy & Independent Living Skills (TILS) delivery and gain fantastic job skills in the process. Young people learning from other young people is how we maximise our social impact.
