We are a voluntary Harrow Council Programme, which is funded by UK charities. Our aim is to assist young people who are not in education, employment or training to make positive changes in their lives. At present we work towards enabling these young people to improve on personal development skills, employability skills and to gain practical work experience. The aim is to enable them to become contributing and valuable members of our communities.

 

The way in which we manage this is by creating work placements via a short term business. All of our trainees engage in the setting up and managing a business with the monetary proceeds donated to Foodbank in the London Borough of Harrow - Charity Number 1154292 This means we are not only providing training and viable work placements but are also donating to a worthwhile charity on the back end of our endeavours. The overall aim is to create a climate that empowers local people and communities, building a "big society".

 

Currently, we aim to set up a pop-up shop on the 29th, 30 and 31st of December, where we will be selling children’s clothes, toys, accessories and other goods.  The programme is aiming to meet the needs of some of the most vulnerable families within our borough. Those invited to attend the final pop-up shop sale are local young people and vulnerable families who will be invited to attend via the local Jobcentre, Foodbank, Charities, Children’s Services and homeless organisations within our housing departments.

 

These prospective customers will come from the lowest earning sectors of our society.

 

This event will be highly publicised and a positive response is expected. At the moment, we are in need of donations and as such, we are looking for companies like you to become involved and assist us in making a change. You are welcome to attend the opening of the pop up shop attended by the press and a celebrity.

 

We would really appreciate it if you are able to assist with any donations, items that are new or seconds or alternatively vouchers etc. Any help you can offer would be gratefully received.
