“4-22 Foundation: Supporting the young
Young people most in need of opportunities and long-term help are the focus of 4-22 Foundation.
Founded in 2019 and based in Tottenham, the foundation offers continuous and integrated long-term support to young people through every stage of their childhood – from the ages of four to 22. 4-22 partners with local schools, service providers, statutory agencies, corporations, trusts and healthcare professionals to reach those most in need of help.
The organisation provides an interlinked, continuous and holistic series of projects throughout a young person’s life from mentoring and academic support to vocational work placements and employability training.
One example of the way it operates is the Navigating Crisis Project. This aims to respond to some of the trains that the Covid-19 pandemic has put on young people in Tottenham including high unemployment rates and the negative impact on mental health. Projects like these keep young people positively engaged, move them towards future employment, improve their confidence and alleviate mental health struggles.”
