The Young Brent Foundation has received a donation from Barratt London to support the hosting of Saturday skills masterclasses, which help to improve the future job prospects of local young people. The housebuilder, responsible for the No. 10 Watkin Road development in Wembley, donated £ 1,000 to help the charity increase its resources and boost opportunities for young people hoping to make a change within their local community.

One of the charity’s most popular training programs is the Creative Co-ordinator initiative, in which 14 to 17-year-olds attend masterclasses to learn skills such as project management, community engagement and strategy development. These skills are then used in a Dragons Den-style pitch, to win funding for their project.

Maxine Willetts, COO of the Young Brent Foundation, comments: “I would like to thank Barratt London on behalf of all the young people and local organizations we support across Brent. We are dedicated to our outreach projects, such as our Creative Co-ordinator initiative, and this donation will help with our mission to bring the highest quality resources and opportunities to our community. ”

Through its Community Fund scheme, Barratt London seeks to support charities and organizations local to its developments in order to help communities thrive, and create a positive legacy. The scheme allows the housebuilder to donate £ 1,000 each month to a charity or organization working to improve the quality of life for those living in the local area.

Pam Reardon, Sales and Marketing Director at Barratt East London, comments: “Today’s young people are the future of our communities, and initiatives teaching them skills for work are essential for the growth of all local areas. At Barratt London, we see the value that organizations such as The Young Brent Foundation bring to different areas around the capital, and we are proud to have been able to support and celebrate such a worthy cause. ”
