This month, Anglia will be visiting from OPEN Youth Trust to talk about their mission and impact.
OPEN was established in 2005 to provide opportunities for young people in Norfolk, including those who are most disadvantaged, with the longer term aim of making a positive difference to their lives. The charity, based in the heart of Norwich, is located in a Grade II listed, multi-purpose venue which provides live music, venue hire for conferences, meetings and events as well as being home to a cafe, climbing wall, dance studio, gym and CLOSED secure storage.
The profit from all commercial activities enables the charity to offer a diverse range of different activities, most of which are free to attend, for young people aged 7 – 25. OPEN’s aims are to provide diverse and innovative ways to engage young people with focus on four key areas: participation, learning, employability and progression. All four underpin the way in which we engage with young people.
