We are keen to establish partnerships with community groups and other organisations in London which work with 16-30 year olds who are NEET or from socially excluded groups. About 50% of those we help come through these routes.
We have already connected with a wide range of partners including:
Livity is a socially-responsible youth marketing agency which works with young people every day to deliver youth-focused campaigns. Our very first beneficiary, Fabien Soazandry, was referred by Livity.
Business Link London is the gateway to all business support available across the capital, both public and private. Business Link London helps London’s businesses to get off the ground, grow and develop. Bright Ideas Trust has a partnership with Business Link London where individuals who contact them seeking support who fall within our target group are passed to us.
The Prince’s Trust addresses issues of poverty by giving practical and financial support to the young people who need it most. They help develop key skills, confidence and motivation, enabling young people to move into work, education or training. Bright Ideas Trust has partnered with The Prince’s Trust to support businesses which are at the next stage of development. For example, Amariyah Raheem was supported by The Prince’s Trust but when her business, La Bella Hair & Beauty, required substantial funding and a health and beauty expert as mentor she came to us.
If you or your organisation works with young people who could benefit from our support, get in contact with us.
