With a keen interest in sport and social enterprise and also wishing to integrate key partnerships within Glyndwr University, I see that the Warehouse Project and University alignment has huge potential to both partners. I hope that whist supporting the work of the project our students are able to gain applied experience that increases their employability skills whilst simultaneously making a real difference to others.
We at the Racecourse Community Foundation engage with as many schools, groups and organisations as possible and to be asked by the young people of the Warehouse Project to be a trustee is a great honour. I look forward to working alongside these young adults in the future in what is sure to be an exciting time for the project. The young people have a vision for the future and I hope as trustees we can all contribute to its success.
I originally became aware of the Warehouse Project when it was recommended to me by one of our Flintshire councillors. After I had arranged to visit and listened to George’s plans for the future I became convinced that the project offered something to the young people concerned that I had not come across previously in all my time with local councils. Many of the individual stories are nothing short of inspirational.
At the official launch of the Warehouse Project I was impressed to learn of the life changing opportunities the project is providing a number of young adults, who for one reason or another have not enjoyed the start in life which everyone deserves.
For me the ethos of the project is about providing a friendly and safe environment, in which young adults are empowered to take control of their lives by encouraging them to set their own agendas to work through.
Being invited to serve as a Trustee for the charity is a new challenge which I’m very much looking forward to carrying out.
Since I first heard of the Warehouse project and attended their open day I have felt that there is such a passion amongst the staff, volunteers and young people that they deserve the help and recognition to make sure people see the value of the work being undertaken. There is such a sense of enthusiasm from the project which if bottled would be such a valuable commodity for other young people. Projects such as this which push the boundaries and don’t fit into the norm for support to young people have a brilliant chance of having meaning full engagement with the beneficiaries. I wish to be able to bring personal knowledge to the project to help the young people further their aims.
Having retired from working in the Third Sector for 20 years, delivering vocational training too hard to reach and hard to engage, vulnerable young people and, adults with learning difficulties and /or disabilities. I was introduced to the Wrexham Warehouse Project through my work with another Charity Organisation and, offered my services and knowledge to help write funding applications and to set up The Wrexham Warehouse Project as an Accredited Vocational Training Centre to enable it to deliver accredited vocational training programmes to a variety of hard to reach and hard to engage young people and vulnerable adults, with a view to helping them change their lives and becoming productive members of the community in which they live.
