What We Do

We are a charitable organisation that provides opportunities for young people between the ages of 14 to 21, often marginalised young people coming from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds.

We support, encourage and empower young people and their community to reach and fulfil their potential by tapping into resources that will allow young people to achieve, both economically, physically and educationally.

In turn, our work in creating community projects, referring young people into work placements and educational based courses and developing positive role models, will as a consequence, benefit their peers, family and their surrounding community, which will lead to safer neighbourhood's, higher attainment and a better environment to live in.

The organisation’s expertise is to tie in a number of multi-faceted interventions, which work seamlessly together by combining media engagement activities with social learning courses alongside nationally accredited qualificationsand added support by delivering counselling and 1-2-1 sessions in areas such as substance misuse, employment support, teenage pregnancy and criminal justice awareness interventions.
