We are delighted to announce that The Walton Charity has agreed a three-year grant of £15,000 per annum in support of Eikon’s work in the local parish, including our Youth Specialist Programme at Rydens Enterprise School.
This Youth Specialist Programme provides preventative support for at-risk young people, ensuring that they have someone to turn to when they most need help. The grant will help ensure the sustainability of this Programme, as a contribution towards fundraising in the area has also been made. Funds raised from the local community will be ring-fenced to this project so that when grant funding expires, the Programme can continue.
We are hugely grateful to The Walton Charity for their extremely generous support of our work with vulnerable young people in our local community.
