Who's big idea was it to have Live Jam Fundraisers taking place across the UK on carnival weekend?
The idea to have multiple fundraising 'live performances' at home on carnival weekend, during the pandemic was the idea of our youth advisory panel, they also want our expert youth mentors to do a pie eating competition later on in the year. Genius!
Help us to help young people excluded from school
Your efforts will help us support young people from across the UK, whose parents call us for help because their child has been excluded from school and are socialising with 'the wrong crowd / new 'questionable' friends' with their new found free time during the day. Unfortunately, these young people are often from unemployed or low income households, with limited incomes to pay for our services. Services that can engage a young person whilst they are excluded from school, are off roll and are yet to receive alternative education from their local authority.
To find out more about the issues and risks school exclusions make to young people's lives read the 2019 Timpson Review here.
Every penny counts
With as little as £12,000 we will be able to support up to 10 young people with a 6-12 months worth of progression mentoring and one to one English, maths and science tuition.
We kindly ask your family and friends to make their Live Jam ticket donation via our local giving fundraiser page found here
