Denis Law Legacy Trust was involved in The Wood Foundation’s NEW Fund initiative which involved health and wellbeing organisations from Aberdeen City undergo a programme of service design activity. This training was designed to develop the tools, skill, and vision to better connect organisations with their communities in order to most effectively meet their needs.
This pilot activity will see a dedicated staff member work directly with young people to identify how they can best be supported and empowered to realise their potential with a focus on enabling Streetsport participants into secure and sustainable employment pathways.
Mark Williams of Denis Law Legacy Trust said:
“Denis Law Legacy Trust specialises in providing positive pathways for young people across Aberdeen. This exciting new partnership with The Wood Foundation will see us working closer with a targeted age group to help develop their resilience and a range of crucial soft skills that will help lead them to their own positive destinations.”
The Wood Foundation has committed £120,000 over a three-year period which will contribute towards the salary costs for the staff member, programme expenditure, and training.
