A charity that gives new opportunities to young people who deserve better, is the chosen charity for a local business.

WeMindTheGap are delighted that Grosvenor Insurance have selected them as their Charity of the Year.

Grosvenor Insurance Brokers are an independently owned, insurance broker, with offices in Chester and Wrexham.

WeMindTheGap will work with Grosvenor Insurance Brokers and their employees to raise funds and increase awareness for the charity.

The charity provides unique programmes for under-served young people across the North West and North Wales.

Their programmes are truly unique - combining work experience and life coaching. Sessions to improve English and maths skills and to develop new skills.

Offering experiences, and adventures, for these young people to assist in building their confidence for a brighter future.

Support from companies like Grosvenor Insurance Brokers makes a massive impact on the difference the charity is able to make in these young people’s lives.

Andy Piggott, managing director of Grosvenor Insurance Brokers, said: "This is a really exciting new partnership, and we are delighted to be supporting WeMindTheGap.

"At Grosvenor Insurance Brokers, we provide confidence in an uncertain world for our customers and so I see a real synergy between our ability to create resilience through our products and services and the work that WeMindTheGap do in creating resilience and helping young people."

• Seventy per cent of young people graduate from WeMindTheGap programmes to paid employment, volunteering or education.
