Nottingham-based charity Switch Up continues to build its business network after agreeing a partnership with Stephen Eve Financial.

The family-run financial advice team will support the charity by offering insightful talks and sessions around the world of work and business, as well as help with CV writing and financial guidance.

In addition, the business has agreed to a monthly donation to Switch Up to contribute towards the everyday running of the charity and its services.

Based in Regent Street in Nottingham city centre, Stephen Eve Financial offers an array of professional services including retirement planning, investment advice and cash-flow analysis. It was set up by Ben and Danielle Slater.

Ben Slater, chartered financial planner and co-founder at Stephen Eve Financial, said: “After hearing about Switch Up’s work, empowering young people throughout Nottingham, we instantly knew we wanted to support them. 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 - which is 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 essential 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.

The charity and its sister organisation, the Nottingham School of Boxing also recently celebrated its 10th anniversary.

Danielle & Ben get involved in a boxing class led by Switch Up & the Nottingham School of Boxing.

Marcellus Baz BEM, founder and chief executive of Switch Up, said: “We are so grateful to have forged a new, exciting relationship with a local Nottingham business. Ben and Danielle’s support will extend beyond fundraising to include life-changing opportunities for the people that we work with.

“Building strong links is essential for Switch Up to help reach more young people and families who require support and it’s great to see the family values that Stephen Eve Financial embodies. Their business goals and how they work to support their clients strongly aligns with what we strive to achieve at Switch Up, so I am confident this benefit will be incredibly beneficial for all organisations involved.”
