Runners in the Birmingham Half Marathon

On Sunday 13th October, Springboard Partner David Neate will be running the Simply Health Great Birmingham Run in support of Talent Match Staffordshire.

Unfortunately, many young people in Staffordshire have fallen between the cracks of social care and are struggling to cope with the effects of loneliness, trauma or mental health problems. Getting into any meaningful work is only a distant dream for them.

This is where Talent Match Staffordshire (TMS) steps up. TMS is a charity that provides one-to-one support to young people to give them the confidence, skills and experience they need to move on with their lives and into employment.

TMS recognises that different people will need different levels of support to gain employment. The programme has a particular focus on helping young people who have been long-term unemployed and face significant barriers to employment, such as parenting or caring responsibilities, disability or a lack of education, to find career opportunities.

TMS provides tailored support to young people according to their needs and aspirations, which can include wellbeing and mental health support, as well as practical help.

David would be very grateful if you would consider sponsoring him and supporting this very worthy cause.  Click here to donate.
