CarFinance 247 driving the way for young people

CarFinance 247 has teamed up with youth charity OnSide Youth Zones to support young people to the tune of £25,000

Directors Reg and Louis Rix have donated £25,000 to the charity, which aims to give young people quality, safe and affordable places to go in their leisure time.
The money will support the growing Ambassador group of Game Changers, a group of around 100 young people, who have been formed through a network of Youth Zones in Bolton, Wigan, Carlisle, Blackburn, Oldham, Manchester and  Wolverhampton as well as a number of passionate young people from London.  They will serve as the figureheads of OnSide future Youth Zones and represent their Youth Zone at key events, actioning any need for change and spreading the word of Youth Zones nationally.
As well as the support to Game Changers, CarFinance 247 will also offer the opportunity for young people who have completed the Get a Job course to apply for their apprenticeship scheme.  
The Get a Job course is a project funded by both AO Smile Foundation and Accenture Foundation UK. With their support Youth Zones have been able to work with over 400 young people in the last 12 months, with 378 completing the course, going on to further education, training or achieving a job.
Reg and Louis jointly commented: “Here at CarFinance 247 we want to support OnSide Youth Zones because we believe in giving back. We want to see all young people have an equal chance and OnSide’s work with young people matches the work we do around leadership, enterprise and employability.  We are excited about the future partnership.”
