The Alumni Network, an upcoming initiative which is still in development, will be a supportive, empowering resource for LEAD programme graduates who are approaching independence, but who want to retain a link with RECLAIM and with each other. Designed to become a peer-led online resource for young people up to age 22, the Alumni Network will provide a further touch-point for those who can both benefit from the network and give back to it, by providing content and skills for use by others. In addition to online resources, there will be monthly in-person events as well as real and developmental opportunities for young people.

Set to launch in 2017, we are expecting to have engaged 300 RECLAIM Alumni within its first year.
