About the Project
These bursaries are part of Fourteen-a's long-term strategy to develop a social business, born out of, and for the community. On qualifying, participants will be supported into work, creating local jobs and supporting an already bustling network of local high streets. The scheme is designed to support those who otherwise wouldn't get the opportunity to develop, facing funding and social barriers.
About the Charity
Fourteen-a is a charity providing education as a motivator to improve the lives of young people – particularly young women – in Cardiff. We teach key literacy and numeracy skills through beauty therapies, treatment practice, and other techniques, creating sustainable employment opportunities in some of the most deprived communities of Wales' Capital City. We promote the social inclusion of people unable to afford the cost of further education and those faced with additional barriers to employment, simply because of their circumstances. Our philosophy is simple: education is beauty.
