Our Nechells Young Leaders programme aims to boost the profile of the young people in Nechells, making them known as a respected, loyal and helpful group of mature young adults. As well as having workshops with business owners, council leaders and statutory agencies we go to Bulgaria to work with young people who are thrown out of institutional care at 18. FSCI Bulgaria provide a House of Opportunity programme to teach them independent skills, and they also run – HOPe SOAP, which is a social enterprise. (www.fscibulgaria.org/en/social-entrepreneurship). This year we decided to start our own soap business to learn the skills for being more effective when we return to Bulgaria. Five local business men and women have given their time to work with our young people to start this business. Working closely with FSCI Bulgaria we have kept the same name so that both organisations can benefit. Thank you for your support.
