The Valley Project, a charity established in 2018, offers outdoor activities to young people to enable them to develop socially, emotionally and physically, as well as, allowing them to spend time with their peers. The charity aims to tackle social inequalities and isolation by providing young people with much needed childhood experiences such as den and treehouse building.
EMR Bradford and The Valley Project joined forces in 2019. The continuation of the partnership allows young people to attend The Valley Project for a year. EMR’s donation cover the cost of the activities and equipment needed, as well as providing food and drink for young people.
Steven Miller, Area Manager at EMR Bradford, added:
“In recent years the Valley Project have carried out a much-needed service in the local community, providing opportunities for young people and enabling them to build friendships. We are delighted to be able to continue support them in doing this.”
Laura Bowen of The Valley Project commented:
“The Valley Project would like to thank EMR for this generous donation and for their continued support, it makes a huge difference to our organisation and the children we work with.”
This partnership was created as part of EMR’s Young Futures Reimagined programme, an initiative to offer opportunities to young people who may not otherwise have access to them.
