Covid-19 Update: In line with the easing of restrictions, we are working towards restarting some face to face activity as part of the Starting Blocks programme from June. In the future we aim to have a blended approach with some face to face activity and some virtual activity.
Starting Blocks provides opportunities for employee-volunteers to support care experienced young people and young adults to gain the practical skills, knowledge, attributes and behaviours they need to secure employment and improve their life chances.
Who is it for?
● Small teams of employee-volunteers can host Behind the Scenes visits, skills workshops and flexible work tasters for care experienced young people.
How does it work?
Through a range of activities employee-volunteers can give care experienced young people an insight into the working environment.
● For employee-volunteers who are interested in taking part, contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then discuss the activities available in more detail with you.
For more reasons to get involved, read a case study about a skills workshop hosted by Aviva.
