Inspiring supporters


The Spear Programme unlocks the innate talent and potential of young people, igniting in them ‘a vision of the possible’. We can only do this with your help.

There are many ways you can support the work of Spear Brighton

Mock interviewing

Have the opportunity to offer a practice interview to a young person and invest in their potential. Be a part of building their career.

“Both of the interview sessions I supported were energising experiences for me. It was a privilege to take the skills I have developed at work and offer my experiences to people at different points in their working life.” Paul Costello, Mock Interview Volunteer

Laura, Fonthill Foundation

We are delighted to support the work of Spear Brighton. The team are fantastic and the transformation in the young people they work with, truly incredible. The confidence, positive mind-set and self-belief that every one of the recent graduates showed during their virtual celebration event we were privileged to attend, was inspirational.

Laura, Fonthill Foundation

“I have been consistently impressed by the Spear training provision. The dedication of the coaches is really inspiring and the format of the course perfectly structured to springboard young people into work. Just today, I met with a recent graduate and I just couldn’t believe how much their confidence and enthusiasm for the future had rocketed.”

Astrid Holm, Work Coach, Brighton Job Centre

“Spear have received positive feedback from the customers we work with, offering adaptations that have removed barriers that would normally prevent people with disadvantages attending work programmes.”

Neil Hall from The Community Hub (Sanctuary Housing)
