We are a small charity with a big mission:
to make ourselves obsolete.
Born out of Moneypenny, we have proven that creating real careers for under-served and marginalised young adults doesn’t take a miracle. It’s an achievable reality if they have access to opportunity. Our objective was to design and run traineeships that maximise that opportunity. We started by scouring the country for examples of best practice and asking the powerful question: “What kind of traineeship would we want if we were standing in our trainees’ shoes?”.
Coaching, mentoring, life and work skills, basic qualifications, and most importantly of all, care and trust, form the backbone of our completely holistic six-month paid traineeship programme that provides meaningful work placements in five different work environments. As a result, every trainee – as part of an important team – broadens their horizons, increases in self-confidence, identifies strengths and weaknesses, develops skills, unlocks potential, grows ambitions, creates strong friendships, and ultimately understands the power of having a choice. Now, we want to do it better and for more under-served young people in new communities every year… until there are none left.
