One to One Support

We can provide tailor made support packages on a wide range of issues.

4 Quarters

A project specifically designed to provide support, work experience and training to females. Girls can be visited in school for 1:1 support through the week and a group runs in Thirsk Mondays 4:30-5:30pm. 

The Clock is one of only 18 organisations across Leeds, Bradford, Wakefield, North Yorkshire and East Yorkshire to receive funding from Two Ridings Community Foundation from the new Tampon Tax Community Fund . The project will help females aged 13 and over to develop strategies for addressing problems. Each person will have a tailor-made package of support that will also include work experience on one of The Clock ‘s projects such as the furniture shop in Thirsk Market Place.
