What will it cost?

That depends who you are and if the work is a one-off or over time. We work pro bono with some partners and young people who would not otherwise be able to engage, and try to match them with a sponsor. Both would be acknowledged as partners.

Our goal is to use consultancy and training income, grants and donations to subsidise pro bono work, such as mentoring and training for young people – particularly for those most excluded, addressing barriers such as transport to access opportunities, and training to utilise them.
