The family-run financial advice team – Stephen Eve Financial Planning – will support the charity by offering talks and running sessions focused on the world of work and business, as well as providing help with CV writing and financial guidance, along with a monthly donation.

Based on Regent Street in Nottingham city centre, Stephen Eve Financial Planning was set up by Ben and Danielle Slater.

“We’re big believers in giving younger generations the confidence to pursue positive paths aligned to their skills and values.

“With the right guidance, they can be pillars of our communities.

“It’s also important to us to give back locally and we are passionate about opening financial careers through enhanced education to people of all backgrounds, helping them to overcome any barriers they may face by equipping them with knowledge and skills.

“We’re proud to partner with Baz and the team, who clearly have a profound impact throughout the city.”

Switch Up – part of the Marcellus Baz Group – empowers young people from disadvantaged backgrounds in the city to turn away from crime.

Its team of mentors deliver employability support within its five pillars model, to deter young people from violence and put them on a pathway to success.

More recently, the charity has been supporting families and individuals who have been affected by the cost of living crisis, arranging collections of food and other essential supplies and delivering across the city.
