The group has been running courses to support young people aged 16 to 25 and help them get out of unemployment for two years. A total 81% of people who completed them are now in education or employment.

Team leader for Joe Oxley said: “We are committed to having a lasting positive impact on the local community, and our young people have done a number of projects to support disadvantaged groups in the area. Projects we have done in the past include creating a garden for a dementia care home, producing reading books for a special needs school and delivering a campaign to raise awareness of mental health issues among young people.”
