This holistic approach to learning dramatically increases the positive outcomes for young people. Our project is delivered by highly experienced and qualified development manager, operations manager, four project workers, career counsellor, tutor, and finance manager. We are independently evaluated by LBBD Quality Assurance and Accreditation Work Related Learning each year.

Our aim is to promote the personal development of disadvantaged young people, aged between 13-17, who are excluded from mainstream education, marginalised by society, ‘at risk’ of offending, come from socially and financially deprived backgrounds, single parent families, ‘looked after children’, or derive from families with a history of unemployment, violence or substance misuse. They have often suffered violence, physical and sexual abuse, and suffer social exclusion. We aim to improve their self esteem, confidence, social skills, behaviour, knowledge, qualifications, and life chances, leading to training and employment opportunities that would not otherwise have been available to them.
