Working with the community at heart

Livin joined forces with Foundation of Light in 2012 to address a number of local issues including health, education, employment and safety in Sedgefield, County Durham.

Through our award-winning programmes delivered in over 20 Primary Schools and from Foundations – a former rent office and now a community learning facility – the partnership has helped improve the lives of more than 2,000 children and adults as well providing benefits to the area as a whole.

Working with other partnerships and community organisations, the Foundations project helps local people learn new skills and improve their lifestyles by offering training and support with employment, health and wellbeing, money management and more.

Our South Durham outrach team, are based in the building in the heart of Shildon, delivering our Back in the Game employability programme and Kicks project which engages young people in a range of constructive and healthy activities to develop their potential.
