Who We Work With

Young people aged between 11 and 19 who are excluded or at risk of exclusion from mainstream education, those that have offended or are at risk of offending, young people not in education, employment or training, and those socially marginalised.

We work with small groups or on a one-to-one basis

Our Values

Caring

We seek to offer a level of care that impacts on an individual level, meeting young people’s physical, emotional and spiritual needs. As a result we prioritise individual, attentive care recognising the need and importance of meaningful personal relationships. To do so we seek to collaborate with the other influences in the individual’s life.

Empowering

We seek to be a voice of hope to marginalised young people. To do so we seek to educate and train them in practical personal and social skills. Additionally we aim to arouse a higher level of self-esteem while also building self-worth in order to enable them to develop aspirations of their own.

Giving Hope

We seek to challenge and reinforce the perceptions, values and perspectives of vulnerable young people through the methodology behind our activities and programmes. We enable them to develop a healthy, well rounded and appropriate outlook on society so that they may participate and find their role in their local community.
