First Give Programme

The First Give Programme encourages a entire year group students to identify social issues in their area and engage with local charities that address them. The students then have the opportunity to compete for £1,000 for their chosen charity.

A group of Alperton students recently took part in the competition and chose the Brent Centre for Young People as their charity. They came to the Centre and had the opportunity to meet some of our Staff and learn more about our work and how the money raised will help us to continue providing mental health for young people in crisis. They were competing against another 15 groups, and were very pleased to have won the 2nd prize:  £250 to donate to the Brent Centre.
