Giving young people a HeadStart

Last September, The Challenge launched a new pilot programme called HeadStart.  Supported by the Mayor of London and attracting 90 young people so far, the HeadStart programme guarantees NCS graduates an interview for part time work once they have completed 16 hours of volunteering in their communities.

Later this year, The Challenge will launch the Social Integration Commission; a 12 month national inquiry set up to explore whether a lack of connection between people of different ages, ethnicities and social backgrounds has an effect on our economy and society.

A number of Sky employees have been involved in a mentoring scheme for NCS graduates from Hillingdon and Hounslow.  Sky first supported NCS in 2012, when they welcomed a team of participants into their office and sat on a number of ‘Dragon’s Den’ panels, judging ideas for community campaigns.

We are delighted to announce that The Challenge is the proud recipient of a Sunday Times 100 Best Not-For-Profit Award.  This is the first time the charity registered to take part in the annual ranking, now in its fourteenth year.
