Help us Make a Difference

Are you able to make a positive impact on young people’s lives?

Together we can keep costs affordable for young people and enable all, from whatever background, to participate and benefit from our work.

LEBC are indebted to our business partners and volunteers, for generously dedicating their time, skills, and energy to support schools and the local community through supporting LEBC’s work. Volunteering through LEBC can develop recruitment channels, strengthen your community profile, and contribute to your Corporate Social Responsibility, as well as developing your own personal skills. We would not be able to deliver our services without our Employer Partners’ continuous support and generosity. We are extremely thankful that they provide us support in our aim to inspire everyone to reach their potential.
