About The Foundation
AP Foundation CIC was formed as a Community Interest Company Limited by Guarantee, under the Companies Act 2006 of England and Wales. Launched as the brainchild of its Corporate Executive Officer (CEO) Andrew Pritchard who created the business in response to the growing demand for a purpose built facility, which provides mentoring, training and served as a think-tank for the local community.
AP Foundation and the AP Academy maintain high corporate values and is committed to fulfilling their social responsibilities and prides itself on being an equal-opportunities employer that champions working with talented young people from all backgrounds of life. We have been working relentlessly with helping young people stay away from offending through engaging with them on purposeful peer-mentoring and rehabilitation programmes. Our intention is to use this alliance between the two companies to offer training and mentorship in areas of the music industry, film, media, hair and make-up and catering. We aim to equip all candidates with the transferable skills and confidence to find employment within the various industries or capability of setting up their own business.
The Academy will serve as a flag ship to or help promote local communities in their efforts against Knife crime, Postcode gangs and young people being caught up in County Lines. We also aim to bring awareness to issues that can help prevent intergenerational offending.
The AP Academy will be a purpose build studio that aims to satisfy the need for diligent and experienced managers, marketers and promoters that care about recording music and performing artists/talent development. We are a collection of extraordinary media and music professionals who have been gathered to offer artists and talent a platform to be seen, heard & represented in the best possible way.
AP Foundation is a Not-for-Profit Community Interest Company. Our mentoring programmes have been written by ex-offenders who have changed their lives and have successfully reintegrated into the community. We aim to improve the lives of our service users by working on a one to one basis and by engaging them on our accredited education, training programmes and employment opportunities.
