Voices in the Middle Project for the Family Initiative Charity
Richard and his wife Ashley have been working as project managers to help mentor and support the Voices in the Middle campaign for young people in the UK. The Family Initiative provides advice and guidance developed with and by young people around divorce and separation. As part of this Rich and Ash have helped develop guide resources for parents as well as helping form a young persons steering group.
This work has included presenting and networking at a national level with partner organisations. In addition one of the elements of the project is to help develop a stronger call to action with the funding partners (family law firms) and consequently the team are also helping deliver a charity fundraising activity.
Rich and Ash have used their mentoring skills with young people developed over 7+ years with Inspired Life CIC and the SMILE project to develop a strong steering group as well as support the young people to feel empowered.
