The Wessex Heritage Trust is a self funding Charity who work with disadvantaged young people aged fourteen to twenty four by engaging them within the regions Heritage and Cultural activities. The project is called The EDGE Project – Engage, Discover and Generate Enthusiasm

The EDGE Project helps those not in Education, Employment or Training, those at risk of offending or who have offended and those who are young carers or who are in care understand and take pride in the areas rich cultural and heritage sites. This is achieved through on site events, and activities created and developed by young people, which allows them to achieve new life skills, gives them a sense of ownership and  promotes the need to take care and such sites and facilities for future generations.

Your help is needed to enable us to take this project to other towns and cities within the Wessex region so they too can benefit from this project.
