Charity & Community

Envision

Envision

Envision develop young people’s employability by empowering them to tackle real-life social problems.

Working with children from less priveledged background in our home town of Bristol, alongside Birminigham and London, Envision bring together local businesses, schools, charities and volunteers to provide a practical learning experience which enables young people to develop the skills they need to succeed in work and life. In return, young people invest their time in developing projects which give back to the community.

Gunner & Co. support 4 youngsters through the programme directly, but that could be more with your support.
