Educating All 27 Jan 2017
Martha and Terry are two young graduates from Manchester who are Reclaim Young Leaders and alumni. Educating All stemmed from their experiences of a shared sense of alienation at University coupled with a lack of support. It is a youth led research study that aims to explore the institutional and personal barriers faced by working class students at the top universities in the UK. Research has been conducted and was published in November 2016 and stimulated a great deal of interest. Universities have asked the team to flesh-out the research recommendations to improve recruitment and retention of working class students. Educating All will also widen the dissemination of their report and develop a 'toolkit' for access officers at universities to use when working class students join their institutions.
Reign Pioneers are a group of young women (19-25) from Manchester who are survivors of child sexual exploitation (CSE). They plan to provide front line staff (social workers, police, teachers etc.) with effective, honest, survivor-led training about the realities of CSE. Based on their own experiences, they know what questions staff should ask young survivors, how to build trust, what works and what doesn't. They will use their insider knowledge and experience, passion, and credibility with young people and within their communities, to ensure that survivors no longer feel alone or are made to feel ashamed - harbouring a dirty secret. They want to ensure that services are led and informed by young people who have lived through the experience of CSE.
Contribution to organisational development 27 Feb 2017
With a vision of a society in which working class young people are positively seen, authentically heard and can lead meaningful social change, RECLAIM supports non-traditional and disruptive leaders from pressurized communities. The methodology of the programme ensures young people develop confidence and are self-reflective and critical thinkers. Funding will support strategic planning and operational development to support growth ambitions.
Action Foundation’s initiative, Learning English Together (LET), will equip churches and other community groups to provide English language support for migrants who face barriers to accessing formal ESOL provision. Action Foundation will develop a social franchise model, providing training, support and resources for small volunteer-run groups to enable them to help migrants and refugees to learn English through practical activities facilitating integration.
