Police & Crime Commissioner’s grant for Youth Work

Dyfodol Powys Futures are delighted to get a grant from Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner’s Community Funding to support our programme ‘Reaching Out’.

“Reaching Out/Estyn Allan helps to build positive futures with vulnerable young men 16 – 25years, for whom other sources of support have failed.  They are at a critical point in their lives, moving into adulthood.   We give intensive one to one support out in their communities, wherever feels best for them: focusing on their lives and what matters to them.”
