Multimedia Outreach facilities, fully equipped with the latest technology, enabling children and young people access to media related opportunities, operate at various locations across the country. The project was originally funded by KidsOut and The Big Lottery Fund, with the intention of each facility ultimately becoming self-sustaining after 3 years of funding. This proved to be successful and now all Multimedia facilities have become self-sustaining and independently run.
KidsOut continues to work with The Switch Project, having secured further funding from Lloyds TSB Foundation for England and Wales to develop the project in Wolverhampton.
The Switch project has helped over 200 children return to education, training or other opportunities.
“The Switch Project has helped me in all different kinds of ways. It’s helped my behaviour and helped my confidence. They have helped with my work and getting a qualification.” 15 year old.
