We’re launching a new initiative for 2020 called STEAMFund.
We want all young people in Wigan to have access to the same opportunities no matter their circumstances, which is why we’ve decided to launch our STEAMFund - a funding pot that will allow us to offer heavily discounted or free places to young people under local authority care, in financial hardship, or unable to pay due to other circumstances.
Where has the money come from?
Sales from our Republic of Wigan shop over the last year have been going towards generating this fund, so thank you to every single person who has bought a mug, badge, t-shirt or any of our other products - you’re supporting young people in Wigan to access our opportunities who might otherwise miss out. Future sales from our Republic of Wigan shop will continue to grow this fund in the hope that we’ll be able to offer more opportunities for young people to engage with our work.
Would you benefit, or do you know someone who would benefit from the STEAMFund?
Please share information about our STEAMFund with any young people who you think could benefit from the fund.
Decisions on who will receive STEAMFund places will be made on a case-by-case basis by our team. There will be a limited number of STEAMFund places per event, and those interested are encouraged to get in touch at the earliest opportunity. The number of STEAMFund places on each event will be advertised within the event description on Eventbrite and Facebook.
Get in touch if you have any questions!
