TwentyTwenty is proudly shortlisted for the Change Project of the Year award category at the 2017 Charity Times Awards. Our team here at TwentyTwenty has been working in partnership with ‘Impetus-Private Equity Foundation’, acclaimed venture philanthropy charity, to review and refine our processes and significantly change our ‘Journey to Work’ delivery model. Our change management process has been thorough and detailed, as we’ve sought to identify the most effective ways to support our young people. We’ve worked with over 50 local businesses to develop our delivery model which is designed to provide disadvantaged young people not only with accredited qualifications, but with the skills and attitudes needed to launch a successful career.

Sarah Webster (TwentyTwenty, Executive Chair) said: “Our plans remain ambitious, but we know they’re achievable. Success for us is about making effective change happen for the young people we work with and helping them secure jobs and a future. We believe we should win this award due to the significant changes we have made to our programme delivery and the momentous positive impact this has had on our young people and will continue to have on young people most-in-need, for years to come.”
