Founded 1995

  • Mission statement

    Chance UK is an early intervention organisation that supports children experiencing emotional and behavioural difficulties.

    The children that we work with are at risk of educational exclusion, anti-social and/or criminal behaviour in adolescence and early adult life.

    We empower children to develop their skills, confidence and life aspirations through a year-long mentoring programme.

  • Aims

    Chance UK aims to:

    • To help the children find ways of improving their behaviour which enables them to stay in mainstream school avoid violent situations, make & maintain positive peer friendships.
    • To raise the aspirations by finding what the children are good at, what they would like to achieve, learning new skills, introducing them to groups that can provide diversionary activities post mentor
    • To help the children improve their educational prospects through improved concentration, experiential learning and one to one support from mentors for weaker areas ie reading, maths etc
    • To offer practical & emotional support to the parents of the children we work with to ensure that the changes that the children achieve can be maintained & developed post mentoring.
