We are delighted to have been nominated for support from the Bain Cares Fund. Bain and Company are one of the world’s leading business consultancy firms, with an office in London. They have an annual staff vote to support charities and make a difference.
Charities are invited to make proposals which can lead to a donation of up to £5,000 towards a project. Friendship Works has requested funding to train eight adult volunteers and support them and their mentees during the first six months of the friendship.
Each mentor whose training is funded will be able to provide around 264 hours of 1 to 1 support for the young person they are matched with during their two year friendship.
Staff will voting for their chosen charities soon, and we will post the results as soon as we know the outcome.
