Tees Valley Arts receives £100,000 grant

An arts development agency on Teesside has been awarded £100,000.

Tees Valley Arts, based in Middlesbrough, has been awarded the grant over two years.

The grant is intended for the Moving On project for creative activities with young people in the care of the local authority.

The pilot project worked with eight young people in care in an attempt to improve confidence, maturity and move towards vocational choices.

Rowena Sommerville, Director of Tees Valley Arts, said the money would allow them to carry out "positive and progressive work with very vulnerable young people in the Tees Valley".
