Barnados are launching a new initiative aimed at developing business and entrepreneurial skills in youg people aged 11 to 21. Through the scheme investors donate £30 of which £10 goes to Barnados and £20 goes into a seed fund. Young people can submit a business plan to earn a £20 investment and work hard over the following 4 weeks to gain the maximum possible return – with all proceeds going to Barnados’ funds. Prizes will be issued in various categories.
