Overcoming barriers to success – a subject that is often referred to when talking about young people. However, the truth is that we all deal with barriers in our lives regardless of our age or background. Overcoming these barriers requires a strategic approach – taking a step back, having an overview of the current situation and the ability to map out a plan that will allow us to reach our goals. This is not always easy. By Nathan Damson, Director.
We know that success means different things to different people. But it is the knowledge of this which underpins the support we now provide for young people…
It has always been important for us to work with young people to become productive members of society, but most importantly to be passionate and enthusiastic about the paths that they themselves choose – with an unmoving belief that there are no limitations to what they are capable of achieving. We remain committed to providing the right set of tools, so that young people can acquire the confidence and attitude to negotiate long term successes throughout their lives.
In short, we will never tell young people how to live their lives, instead we will support them in their plans and encourage long term social mobility and economic independence.
Young people shape the support that we provide, but we could not provide this support without our partners…
Partnerships are integral to the work that we do:
We put research and evidence firmly at the centre of our ethos – with a focus on enduring and meaningful outcomes. We strive to become industry leaders in the development and delivery of creative youth-centric initiatives. Working closely with our partners, we can develop opportunities for young people within an ethical and charitable framework.
We are currently in partnership with a range of organisations and services for young people. We work with education providers, religious organisations, non-statutory and statutory services, charities and a range of public and private organisations.
We want to hear from you. If you are interested in developing a partnership with Cultural Capital or if you want to know more about what we do, contact us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
