Food: Access to nutritious meals daily.

Our vision is to empower multiply disadvantaged children and young people to beat financial, social and academic barriers so that they can have a great childhood, a healthy transition into adulthood. We aim to empower them with the tools to break free from the vicious intergenerational cycle of poverty, unemployment and low aspirations.

Our services range from breakfast clubs, after school activities, holiday opportunities, skills courses, social hubs and Sen support.
