Last week saw us mark our 2nd birthday (albeit a bit belatedly as it’s actually in April)!  

We celebrated in style at the beautiful 71a Gallery in Shoreditch, with NEXT graduates receiving their Open College Network qualification certificates alongside some moving speeches from former trainees, staff and supporters. 

Liz gave a speech reflecting on the DIY ethos of the punk scene which inspired so much activity and creativity 40 years ago. It's one we've carried into the work setting up Foundation for Change over the past two years and captures the spirit of what we're all about.

We washed it all down with some refreshing non-alcoholic drinks and delicious home-made canapés. Thanks to our lovely team of volunteers who helped us on the night and to all who came to celebrate with us.
