Announcing the Enrichment Partnerships Programme

We are delighted to share the news that the two founding partners of the North East Youth Alliance, Youth Focus: North East and NEYouth, have been awarded two grants for an exciting new programme aiming to test whether providing centralised support to schools around enrichment has a positive impact on the quality and uptake of enrichment activities locally, without leading to additional costs/resources for schools.

The programme has been developed by NCS – National Citizen Service Trust and The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award and jointly funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) and the Department for Education. North East Youth Alliance (NEYA) has been created to support the development and sustainability of the people and the organisations working to improve the lives of young people across the North East.

Our ambition is to support a culture shift across the sector – to get people in the youth and community sector thinking and working differently. Through the Enrichment Partnerships Programme, our collaborative efforts aim to synergise resources and drive positive change within the educational landscape.

This is thanks to two grant awards with the total exceeding £232,000. Youth Focus: North East will be focusing our efforts on Middlesbrough, aligning strategically with the Middlesbrough Youth Mutual, a local youth partnership.

If you are an enrichment provider working in Middlesbrough and would like to to get involved in this programme, please contact us!
