Over the last five years thousands of young people, aged 13 and over, have taken part in courses providing essential skills in ICT/Digital, Managing Finances, Maths and English, Personal and Social Development and Business & Enterprise.
Sir David Harrison says: “The role of the Harrison Centre is to help young people get a job and then keep it until they get a better one. There is a genuine community within the Beacon of Light and it’s no surprise that the Foundation of Light has a national and international reputation as their work and staff are outstanding. They care about the community and helping people create better lives for themselves.”
Sir Bob Murray CBE, chairman of the Foundation of Light added: “Much has been achieved together over the last five years but myself and David have a long-term vision to create a sustainable portfolio of programmes to support our young people to do more and be more.”
“At a time when we are all facing unprecedented, challenging and changing times, now more than ever the Foundation – and our partners such as the Harrison Centre – matter to the people of the north east.”
