Youth Almighty

Sunderland charity, Youth Almighty has joined forces with leading metal recycler, EMR Sunderland to help more young people access new experiences and learn new skills.

The partnership, which was developed as part of EMR’s Young Futures Reimagined programme, aimed at building bright futures for young people, will provide two pop-up events for young people in Sunderland’s city centre.

Youth Almighty receiving donation

The donation from EMR will be used to support the Zone’s ‘Young Carers Programme’ – an initiative created to support young people, who have found themselves in a carer role as a result of COVID-19. The money will be used to provide one-to-one support mentoring, personalised development plans and group work for up to 30 young people. Employability skills will also be provided for those approaching working age.

“We are delighted to be working in partnership with EMRs Young Futures Reimagined programme. The support provided will ensure that young people in the city centre are offered an alternative to anti-social or criminal behaviour. Young people will be given the opportunity to engage in meaningful activities and learn new skills.”

says Joanne Laverick, Project Manager at Youth Almighty.
