Marlborough Brandt Group

Marlborough Brandt Group has used a £7,850 grant from ERSF to supprt the establishment of Global Action Groups in Centres registered for the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme.

“We feel that work which enables young people to make sense of the complex world in which they are growing up and raises their awareness of their role and responsibilites within it is extremely valuable,” explained Global Education Manager Kathryn Pollard.

“Participants in the first year of the programme when surveyed said that they had learnt ‘a lot’ and most were now ‘more likely’ to take part in further campaigning activities. All had been challenged by the idea that being an active global citizen is more than charity fundraising.”
