Investing in Children CIC have been successful in securing funding from Comic Relief. Funding will be used over a two year period to support 16 young people that are/have been engaged in the criminal justice system.

The first cohort group of young people have identified Newton Aycliffe as the community they would like to work in, and have suggested that they would like to develop a sports based project and healthy eating that would benefit local children, young people and families in the area. The young people have a budget of £2,000 to help develop their project.

Investors in Children are supporting the young people throughout. The young people have designed a leaflet together and they have started their project in the Silverdale area of Newton Aycliffe, with support from Dorothy Bowman’s to use her facility.
