New IT suite for our Charity of the Year 2014
Young mums and dads will now be able to access the internet in their search for work thanks to a new IT suite which was donated and installed by Space Engineering Services.
The young parents, who are supported by local charity the Teenage Parents Project, can now access four new Wi-Fi-enabled computers at the tenants’ centre in Withywoodm Bristol.
The new computer suite, which was officially launched by the Lord Mayor of Bristol Faruk Choudhury on 26th February 2014, will be used by the local community to access services, search for employment and education, and make funding applications. The Lord Mayor of Bristol, Faruk Choudhury said; “These IT facilities will be greatly appreciated by local people and I would like to thank Space Engineering Services for their continued support for the Teenage Parents Project”.
But the support the charity provides doesn’t end here. A free crèche, activity clubs and training courses are just some of the other facilities that the Teenage Parents Project provides in its ambition to promote young parents’ development and life chances by furthering their skills, education, health and wellbeing.
Space Engineering Services has chosen the Teenage Parents Project as its Charity of the Year for 2014 in order to focus its fundraising efforts. In addition to the new computers, the company has funded one of their youth groups and met the centre’s PAT testing requirements. Furthermore, staff from Space Engineering will undertake the Three Peaks Challenge in June 2014 to raise funds for the charity. Rick Taylor, Chairman at Space Engineering, said; “We’re delighted to be supporting the Teenage Parents Project and provide support to a very important part of the community”.
