supporting individuals or small groups to help them achieve something they can be proud of
From relationships built on the streets and through working with local schools and other professionals we come alongside individuals or small groups to help them discover more about themselves and to support them to achieve something they can be proud of. To date we’ve supported young people to set up and run a Café, organise football tournaments, get a part time job, organise a Christmas event and run stalls at the teenage market. We help young people access small grants to help them set up their own micro-enterprise and get extra training in areas they are passionate about.
We also mentor young people who are really struggling and simply need a consistent adult presence who they can talk to, and be encouraged and challenged by. Such help has enabled young people to re-engage into education after periods of absence and taken pressure of families who are struggling to cope.
