Starting Blocks

Starting Blocks provides opportunities for employee-volunteers to support care experienced young people 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.

Get involved
