Infiniti Group Foundation

Infiniti Group’s Foundation helps change young lives.

Around one in five young people in the UK are not in work, education or training. Youth unemployment costs the UK economy £10 million a day in lost productivity, while youth crime costs £1 billion every year.

We address this by giving practical and financial support to the young people who need it most. We help develop key skills, confidence and motivation, enabling young people to move into work, education or training.

Infiniti Group Foundation delivers a number of core programmes across the UK and Africa. The majority of programmes are delivered to NEET young people aged 16 to 25.

Infiniti Group Foundation is a charity that believes in young people who often don’t believe in themselves. We seek out those young people that need our help the most and work with young people who struggle at school, are in or leaving care, are long-term unemployed or have been in trouble with the law. We work with young people aged 14-30 to help them get back into work, education and training.

We also involve young people in the design and evaluation of programmes. Our programme include engagement activities, progression support and peer mentoring.

Most Infiniti Group Foundation programmes include accreditation opportunities but our experience is that, for the young people we support, accreditation is less important than engagement, confidence, life skills and personal development

 

Programmes to support young people

We run programmes that encourage young people to take responsibility for themselves – helping them build the life they choose rather than the one they’ve ended up with:

  • The Enterprise Programme provides money and support to help young people start up in business.
  • The Team Programme is a 12-week personal development course, offering work experience, qualifications, practical skills, community projects and a residential week.
  • Get intos are short courses offering intensive training and experience in a specific sector to help young people get a job.
  • Development Awards are small grants to enable young people to access education, training or work.
  • Community Cash Awards are grants to help young people set up a project that will benefit their community.
  • xl clubs give 14-16 year olds who are at risk of truanting, exclusion and underachievement a say in their education. They aim to improve attendance, motivation and social skills.

 

Raising funds

To continue this vital work we need to raise £4 million this year. We rely upon generous giving and fundraising from a huge variety of people. Supporting Infiniti Group Foundation can be:

as simple as using our Business Finder to support a Trust business
as rewarding as taking on a Challenge Event, where you visit a remote part of the world for a life-changing adventure
as fun as taking part in the Palace to Palace cycle ride
