Charity nomination #4

Bridge Training and Development offer bespoke programmes to young people.
 Most of the young people who come to us full time are very vulnerable and in the Looked After system and have had extremely difficult early years.  Consequently, they need acceptance and nurturing before they can progress to successful learning which we do over time here.  We have a fabulous staff team who have the endless patience required to enable that young person to move forward with a most positive view of themselves.
We also have the farm shop which we use to help young people in work experience and also improve their functional skills.  The farm shop stocks our own pork and lamb where the young people have been involved in the care of the farm animals, as well as fruit & veg, jams and juice and woodwork the students have made.   The shop is open term time 9.30 – 2.30 Monday to Friday.
As you will be aware the funding cuts have affected many charities and many other providers in the area have folded, we would be very very grateful for any help from the Joggers!
