The Skill Mill has just turned 6 years old. To celebrate the occasion, a birthday party was held at Northern Design Centre Gateshead.
In 6 years, The Skill Mill has employed 127 young people. Just 15 of those have been re-convicted. This means our re-conviction rate is 12%, compared with the national average of 67%. This demonstrates that design-thinking and co-creation through effective partnerships can result in innovative solutions to social and environmental problems and make significant savings to the state.
We would like to thank all the Corporate Partners and Local Authorities who have helped co-create these opportunities. We look forward to sharing some exciting news with you in the near future.
