The Blake Foundation Supports Welsh Charity Youth Shedz
Blake Donate £500 to Youth Shedz charity to help provide safe places for young people to develop and learn new skills
Through The Blake Foundation, we are committed to helping others and support a number of local and national charities each year, making substantial donations.
Many of the charities we support relate to circumstances that have touched the lives of our staff and friends and, with our mission to ‘Give Hope Through Education’, many of these also relate to supporting social mobility for children and helping them in their learning and self-development journey.
Recently we donated a sum of £500 to Youth Shedz, a wonderful initiative that provides a safe place for young people to ‘explore who they are, to develop pro-social relationships with suitable role models, develop and learn new skills.’
From where the first project started in Denbigh, Wales, the charity has expanded to a number of different locations across the country. The charity’s vision is for every town in Wales to eventually have their own project, providing a safe, nurturing environment where young people from all walks of life will be able to spend time with role models and develop their sense of identity and their skills.
There are many people in our communities who enjoy giving their time and skill set to work with young people, and Youth Shedz provides a place for those opportunities to take place. Understanding that young people need to be listened to, challenged, and encouraged to make the most of their lives, they hope that these spaces will meet them where they are at in their lives and walk with them in to a brighter future.
We were happy to support them in the wonderful work they do!
