ASCEND

Since opening in 1996, ASCEND has helped more than 4,000 clients improve their life chances, confidence and skills levels and above all their sense of hope.

ASCEND is a multi-award winning community charity based in South Oxhey, Hertfordshire, an area recognised as a regeneration district with social deprivation issues. Thanks to ASCEND, many local people now have the self-esteem, self confidence and skills to increase their life chances, often finding employment or voluntary work as a result. ASCEND offers basic skills, IT and arts based courses, a job club and counselling services. New projects include the Dig Deep Allotment Project and Step Up, in conjunction with Herts Mind Network.
