Nene Valley Care Trust (NVCT)
Nene Valley Care Trust (NVCT) is a local charity that funds projects giving care leavers the support, guidance and confidence they need in accessing education, training and employment.
The project offers intensive 1-2-1 support to care leavers and organises apprenticeships with local businesses. It also works with further education colleges to help young people to access training, education and employment.
"My experience showed me that the needs of young people leaving the care system are not being fully met. The project has been very successful to date, but, we can't do it without the continued support of local businesses. If any local businesses are interested in giving something back by offering an apprenticeship to a local care leaver who is being mentored by our scheme then please get in touch."
