· They are now supporting the New Horizon Youth Centre
· Aiming to raise funds and potentially help place more young people in their apprenticeship scheme.
· Members of Serviceteam will be taking part in the London to Brighton bike ride in aid of New Horizon Youth Centre.
Serviceteam has always tried to encourage young minds and help develop them through the ranks of their company. They have invested a lot of time this year into creating a focused plan for social responsibility. As well as training young people through apprenticeships they have also selected a charity to work with. The first major fund raising event will be the London to Brighton bike ride where they hope to raise plenty of money for the youth centre.
Simon Barney Head of Operations says ‘We feel it is important for us as a company to nurture the youth of today as they will be the future of our business. Working in central London we see first hand the problems that face young people in our community and we are committed to do what we can to improve their lives. Working with New Horizon is an exciting chapter in our business and we hope to forge a lasting relationship and really make a difference.
New Horizon Youth Centre aims to enable young people to gain skills and knowledge to improve their life chances and to help them move from adolescence into adulthood. They work with some very disadvantaged young people, many of whom have poor self esteem, low confidence, a history of rejection, harm and abuse and often profoundly negative experiences of organisations, structures and the helping professions generally. Based in the Kings Cross, Somers Town area of London, the centre sees up to 3,000 young people a year and is open seven days a week. New Horizon Youth Centre does a great deal to turn the negative experiences around by offering a supportive environment whilst channelling young people towards meaningful lifestyles and occupations.
