Service Six has been awarded £5,000 from Northamptonshire Community Foundation through the #iwill Fund.
Founded in 1979, Service Six provides a range of programmes for thousands of disadvantaged children, young people, adults and families within the local community.
Based in Wellingborough, the charity aims to add real value to the lives of young people and their families through a number of initiatives including support and counselling, informal education sessions, youth clubs, community groups and work readiness sessions.
Funding from the Foundation will support the organisation’s youth fundraising project. Young people will be trained to become youth fundraising volunteer, with the aim of developing their own projects for Service Six.
