We're delighted to have been awarded a grant of £60,000 from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. This will help us over the next two years as we look at developing partnerships with organisations in the North West of England so that we can revive our Positive Assertive Confidence Skills (PACS) programme, which we previously ran from 2012-2015 with funding from the Big Lottery Fund.
PACS targets young people who have disengaged from school, who are exhibiting challenging behaviour and who are particularly vulnerable, including young carers and looked after children. The grant from PHF will help us to explore ways in which PACS could complement other services already provided to these disadvantaged groups by other organisations, helping us to grow our impact and increase our reach.
We are thrilled to have the support of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. You can find out more about them here.
