Strive College – lease help


Strive College is a new Community Interest Company which has been set up to provide education and support to young people (aged 19-25) with learning difficulties. At present, once a young person with learning difficulties reaches 18 they have to leave their school, and will often end up unemployed and isolated at home. Strive has been set up to provide ongoing education for people to the age of 25, supporting them into further education, training and employment. The college will open in September 2024, initially with 10-15 students in Workington. In order to open we need help to secure some premises and convert them to be suitable for our students. We have found premises. We now need some help from someone with legal or conveyancing knowledge to guide us when entering into a lease. We would also benefit from volunteers with knowledge and experience of converting premises – to help us design the space, buy materials and equipment (we have some budget for this) and make the changes on site. We need to do this in the first 7 or 8 months of 2024, so that we are ready to open in September.
