Raising Aspirations of children and Young people in Barnsley


Ad Astra was founded in July 2013 with the expressed aim of raising the aspirations and life experiences of the young people of Barnsley. We are a Community Interest Company which means that we are not for profit and that any monies raised is directly put back into provision for young people. Since our inception we have received funding from BBC Children In Need, The Big Lottery Awards For All fund, along with local community funding.
