To help launch our Foundations Project we celebrated with an unforgettable evening, featuring fabulous food, incredible entertainment and unrivalled opportunities to get dressed-up.

We were delighted so many of our friends, partners and young peope could join us to celebrate in style at the stunning venue,  Constellations, in Baltic Triangle, Liverpool.

The arrival of The Glitter Girls help set the mood for the night, transforming all the guests. It wasn’t long before everyone had a hint of sparkle….ready for the ultimate selfie opportunity in the Pixel photo booth.

Layla Murray, Foundation Festival Co-ordinator/ Youth Development Worker said:

“The Foundations Launch was a great success. Fantastic to see the young people involved in the Foundations Project come together in one place and enjoy themselves so much. 


The entertainment was definitely the highlight of the evening…with MC Tom Coates, our Tuebrook Youth Development Worker, special guest DJ Helen, our Anfield Youth Development Worker, vocals from local talented singer Shea Dolin,  the awesome MD Dance Productions, the stunning strength of Capoeira and more.

“We are looking forward to celebrating the achievements of the Foundations Project; we will definitely be shouting about the accomplishments of the young people at each of the project milestones.”

I value working with colleagues in a culture that fosters inclusion, professional development and trust.

My experience of working in Schools, Youth Work and Children’s Services for many years has afforded me with the knowledge and ability to successfully work within this specific field and the wider professional environment.   

I have inspired others with commitment, enthusiasm and confidence, I am courageous with relentless energy and passionate in pursuit of the vision.

Having the ability to gain trust has enabled me to motivate young people into making the right choices, mentoring young people onto appropriate support and transition in schools, employment and semi-independent housing.

I have provided high quality levels of pastoral support to young people, giving advice and guidance to them therefore enhancing their personal development, I have reached out and extended this support to the families also.   

This role is very specific to my skills and abilities, recognizing that communication is key to working with families, discussing all options and strategies with parents getting them on board  to decide what will work best for the young people.   

Representing the organisation in a positive light, ensuring confidentiality of information, I am committed to the ethos of my employer I am also adaptable with a professional approach.
