Thanks to Newington!

Start360 received a grant of £500, which has enabled 18 young people to further engage in education, training and workplace exposure.
Eleven of our Switch onto Employment participants were supported in achieving Essential Skills qualifications in Numeracy and Literacy.
Without ongoing financial support many of these 'NEET' young people would not have been able to attend exams or participate in personal development and specialist pastoral supports.
This additional support has contributed to
- promoting social inclusion, education and learning experiences,
- reducing barriers to employment, and
- supporting positive lifestyle choices.
Start360 is pleased to have worked in collaboration with Newington Housing Association through their Community Investment Fund, to enable transitions into progressive education and training pathways.
