BUDDING young leaders have been given an insight into the work of Keighley social housing group Incommunities.

Twenty-four delegates from the Bradford Lead programme took part in a series of interactive sessions with Incommunities' organisational development team.

And there was a presentation focusing on the group's strategic plan – Improving lives to 2040.

Geraldine Howley, Incommunities’ group chief executive, said: "It was great to share our expertise and experience of how we, as a group, strive to invest in young people and their communities through programmes such as GEM, our apprenticeship work and through our active links with schools.

"We are keen to inspire more young people to achieve their ambitions and Bradford Lead is a great way to unlock the potential of our younger generation.

"Hopefully the visit to Incommunities will have encouraged these young people to explore for themselves how they can take the lead in achieving their goals as future leaders."

Bradford Lead, which is supported by Bradford Council, aims to equip more young people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds to be successful leaders and play an active role in their communities.
