Our schedule: current and upcoming projects

24 June 2022 | All News

2022 is set to be our busiest yet, as we expand as an organisation, growing and developing new and existing partnerships and programmes. Here you’ll find a rundown of our live and upcoming VIY projects by region, which we’ll be keeping as up to date as possible (all subject to shift at any time – oh construction life!)

Get involved

In general we work with young people aged 14-24, however in some regions (labelled below) this is adjusted to 16-24, according to our funding requirements.
