Thought this might be of interest. The insurance company Aviva have launched a community fund to support community projects and are asking the public to vote for the projects that they think should receive the money they've asked for. One of the projects is Streetscape, London, which provides apprenticeships for 18-25 year olds who are long-term unemployed. On completion they get a level 2 in Work-based Horticulture. Streetscape also fund short courses, help with driving lessons, offer taster days and help with job searches. Sounds a very worthwhile project and helps towards the shortfall in young people entering horticulture.

Actually, there are loads of worthwhile causes to choose from, with quite a few gardening projects, mainly to do with health, but this deserves a few votes from the landscaping community, I reckon.

The link to the Streetscape page is https://community-fund.aviva.co.uk/voting/project/view/2948/   and the Fund site is https://community-fund.aviva.co.uk/cms/.
