Working in partnership

The team at 1625IP have been supported in so many different ways, by so many remarkable individuals and organisations, to carry out the work we’ve shared in this toolkit. In dreaming up, designing and delivering the two phases of the Future 4 Me project, we collaborated with many local and national partners who enriched our thinking and learning and helped the project to evolve and respond to the needs of the young people involved.

It would be impossible to list everyone who has been part of this project. In addition to our official partners identified below, we want to express our grateful thanks to every young person who was involved in and contributed to F4M and who took the time to give us feedback, to every professional who got alongside us, and every organisation who supported us and shared resources, time and energy with us.

The National Lottery Community Fund

When people are in the lead, communities thrive.

The National Lottery Community Fund supports ideas and projects that matter to people and communities. We are deeply grateful to Tim Temple and the team at The National Lottery Community Fund, who gave us so much more than just money. Thank you for being genuinely invested in the young people we work with, for trusting us to deliver, and for supporting and encouraging us to share our learning with others.
