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.
It could be anything from going to pick them up every morning if there are no local transport options, to buying them appropriate clothes for an interview, to keeping in regular contact with their employers or tutors, to ensuring they are making the most of the opportunities available to them.” - Berni Lane

My experience showed me that the needs of young people leaving the care systeam 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.
