Increasing opportunities for vulnerable and disadvantaged young people in Kent to learn and grow
Bore Place located near Edenbridge, Kent, is working to create a better future by providing a place that brings sustainability to life and offers opportunities to learn, grow and be inspired.
Home to the charity the Commonwork Trust, Bore Place is set in 500 acres of countryside, encompassing an organic dairy farm, organic market gardens, conference centre and environmental education centre.
A recent donation from gbpartnerships foundation to Bore Place will go towards educational programmes for vulnerable and disadvantaged young people from across the local area. gbpartnerships are working with Kent Community Health NHS Foundation Trust to take forward the development of the new Edenbridge Memorial Health Centre. Caroline Arnold, CEO Bore Place commented:
“We are thrilled to have received this donation at such a pivotal time for us. More than ever, we are aware of the need for young people to get outside and connect with nature and the countryside after the impact of covid and lockdowns. We look forward to welcoming more groups of vulnerable and disadvantage young people to Bore Place and supporting them in their development and learning.”
Hugh Robinson, gbpartnerships group Business Development Director commented:
“We are passionate about supporting young people to unlock their potential for tomorrow. By supporting Bore Place to deliver positive opportunities for young people across Kent, we hope that this early intervention will in later life reduce the reliance on NHS and community services.”
