In 2013, Adderstone Foundation donated £5000 towards the North East Leadership Group (NELG) of the Prince’s Trust. The Trust is the UK’s leading youth charity and is dedicated to reaching disadvantaged young people, giving them the tools they need to overcome barriers and get their lives on track.
There are a million young people in the UK who are not in education, employment or training and unemployment figures in the North East stand at 10% which is 1.4% higher than any other region. This donation will help to provide support and development for disadvantaged young adults, helping them change their future and stabilise their lives.
Allison Harrison, a Trustee for Adderstone Foundation, said: “Adderstone Foundation is honoured to be part of the North East Leadership Group and to be able to help support the next generation.
“Our donation will go on to give new opportunities to disadvantaged children and youngsters in the North East and help to move them into employment.”
