Our Work

What do we do?

The Charity engages disadvantaged young people to learn more about design and technology in Mansfield and the wider Nottinghamshire area. Through its work more young people learn and develop the skills to pursue a career or start a new businesses in the design and technology sector. 

Disadvantaged young people are guided into a sector which has growth potential in a former mining industrialised community. Our work builds life skills and increases the employability of young people.
