HOW YOU CAN HELP US
Our tailored approach is more expensive than contracting large businesses to provide a ‘conveyer belt’ of training to large numbers of young people – but because of the personalised approach we consistently outperform the Scottish national average of positive outcomes. On average it costs around £5,000 for one young person to complete the programme.
In total that means it costs £17,250 a week to operate WorkingRite, 29% of which must be raised from voluntary contributions, grants, fundraising and gifts in wills. That’s £30 an hour being gifted by friends and supporters who believe in what we do.
Every penny counts. Your help will ensure that over 170 young people each year are supported through our programme and progress into a job, further education or apprenticeship – giving them the chance to really make something of themselves – when others may have given up on them.
There’s lots you can do to help. From individual donations to sponsored events; from taking a collection can for your shop or business to getting your company to take WorkingRite on as their charity of the year; from community events to grants from trust & foundations -– the list is endless.
We are a small fundraising team, but please email us if you have any ideas or questions.
