North Atlantic Fishing Company has renewed its annual sponsorship of national maritime charity, the Tall Ships Youth Trust. The Trust aims to support those aged between 12-25 years old in redefining their skills with experiences and learning at sea and is the UK’s oldest and largest sail training charity.
Support for the Trust from sponsors like the North Atlantic Fishing Company helps to fund its youth sailing voyages, which help to encourage teamwork and participation at sea in a safe environment with youngsters from disadvantaged backgrounds, or those that live with a disability.
The Tall Ships Youth Trust says that its supporters have given over 120,000 young people the opportunity to partake in its voyages throughout the years, helping those who may have been marginalised by society. An exceptional 97% of participants involved in one of the Trust’s two-year projects go into employment, education or training within six months of completion.
Matthew Cox, CEO of North Atlantic Fishing Company, said of the sponsorship: “The Tall Ships Youth Trust really gives back to those in need and can also spark a passion in young people for a future career in the maritime industry.
“The work it does is paramount in supporting disadvantaged and disabled youngsters from across the UK, equipping them with confidence and social and leadership skills they can deploy in everyday life going forwards. The Trust adapts the learning to suit everyone, accommodating those with special educational needs and disabilities so that the experience is inclusive to all, and we are very pleased to be able to support it.”
