We have been developing and delivering programmes that impact disaffected young people since 2006.

Our Approach

We believe that the success of a programme depends on two factors:

How you deliver your programme is as important as what you deliver

Relationship is central to the effectiveness of any work with children and young people

We believe it is essential to create an environment where children and young people feel safe, welcome, valued and listened to, creating the opportunity to effect them with the content of the programmes we deliver.

Two-thirds of the young people we have mentored have returned to full-time education
