We will be supported two charities in 2020:
A national, award winning anti-bullying charity who in addition to their e-mentoring support, provide innovative, engaging and interactive anti-bullying workshops and training programmes that are developed to reduce bullying in schools and the workplace; change attitudes and behaviours, recognise and respect difference, understand impact and consequences and raise confidence and self-esteem.
A Leicester-based charity who support young people aged 13-25 years to develop the skills, confidence and aspirations to lead fulfilling lives and to make a positive contribution through volunteering.
