Families First: How Brathay is helping troubled families
Princes Trust, Summer 2016
We are proud to be a delivery partner for the Prince's Trust Team Programme in Bradford.
Our programme helps young people to recognise their potential, develop their confidence, boost their self-esteem and support them to achieve the Team qualification at Award or Certificate level.
Many of our young people have struggled to achieve in the education system. This programme provides a platform and a structure to motivate them to believe in themselves and inspires them to go on to further education and into employment.
