Opportunity for community value and social good in Exeter

Tender Victory is delighted to be assisting with the establishment of a brand new community interest company which is going to support young people across the Exeter area and beyond to gain skills that will help them to enter college and/or gain employment. New Roots Workshop CIC will offer a workspace where young people can pursue vocational learning topics, namely construction-based skills such as carpentry, bricklaying, plumbing, plastering or tiling. All taught at a very accessible level with the aim of bolstering existing school curriculums, providing the opportunity to obtain essential life skills and hopefully keeping young people off the streets and helping them to gain a foothold in employment.

The largest challenge facing the CIC currently is the availability of suitable workshop premises from which to run the service. Helping the CIC to locate or secure a workshop offers Exeter businesses the opportunity to be part of delivering some real social and community benefit, that will increase the chances and opportunities of young people that struggle with traditional education environments but want to develop their skills.

At Tender Victory we fully understand the benefits that delivering social value can bring to local businesses and would be delighted to introduce the CIC to any business that can offer relevant support that contributes to benefiting the lives of young people in the area.
