hi PALMS NORTHWEST is based in the northwest we are in anfield liverpool we are a new and very small cic who are in desparate need of funding. We go out to secure units, primary schools, secondary schools, youth offending services, in liverpool, sefton, huyton, halifax, manchester,attendance centres alternative education centres,
we are very passionate in the work we do as all our members have had children murdered and we believe that educating young people that a knife or gun is not cool and that you will end up in jail or dead.
our programmes are hard hitting but they are real and told by real mums who want to make a differance to the young peoples lives,we believe that no child is born bad and we would like to help them to change thier lives for the better.
if anyone out there can offer any advice regarding funding or help in any other way we would be very grateful thank you
