Holiday Activity Club

"I wanted to thank the foundation for the fantastic and well organised holiday club; my kids enjoyed it very much and said it was their best holiday club so far. I wanted to give my feedback as I believe this foundation deserves very good feedback. Thank you again for your effort and the memorable and fantastic summer holiday."

Hatch Programme Participant

“My mum told me about the Community Foundation programme and told me this would be good for me.
I attended the Hatch Programme, and my experience was good because I had learnt a few skills.
I have gained confidence and also new skills I need to know in a job. I know how to make  a CV. I enjoyed the whole thing because it wasn’t boring, we had fun activities and it was fun."

Hatch Programme Work Placement

“I found Community Foundation’s Hatch programme via a job site.
I saw it as a great opportunity to add experience to my CV and to learn more about employment.
Hatch was a nice experience as I’ve never done admin work before.  I gained skills and knowledge needed when in an interview and what a good CV looks like. I liked the modules and pizza"

Work Placement Student/Trainee

“I first learned about Community Foundation through my traineeship at Protocol. What motivated me to be a part of Community Foundation was that I have always aspired for be an integral aspect of a company/organisation. I have yet to complete my Hatch programme at KFC, where I hope my confidence and communication skills will be improved. One of my most memorable experiences at Community Foundation was the Hatch modules where I got to communicate and work as a team with people my age.“

Hatch Programme Work Placement

“Community Foundation allowed me to gain valuable skills that are a necessity for a person to have. My placement enabled me to grow as a person and become a better version of myself. I also learnt skills that school doesn’t teach, such as talking to people over the phone confidently. The environment is warm and welcoming and is the perfect place to develop as a young individual.“

“What motivated me about the foundation is it recognised people’s hard work; there are a lot of people from ethnic minority backgrounds who are doing amazing work throughout different industries but are not recognised. The community foundation recognised this and gave them the recognition they deserve"
