Your support is vital in supporting our aim to deliver equitable educational and career development opportunities for as many young people as possible.

Working with carefully selected partner organisations, we are developing effective, impactful and sustainable programmes that support young people who are struggling to engage at school and may have lost focus, confidence and self-belief.

These are developed around the ‘Skills Builder’ framework and introduce skills such as problem solving, leadership, teamwork and creativity, to establish core competencies that will enhance their educational chances and employment opportunities in the future.

Funds raised through our charity Race Day will enable us to support more children in Berkshire and across the UK to access opportunities that will make a difference to their future through reengaging them in their studies, helping them to develop transferable skills, and increasing their future employment chances.

Individual tickets are available at £250. Please see the following information for further details on sponsorship opportunities for this event, Race Day Sponsorship.
