  • Mission statement

    A. P. P. L. E. Encourage our children and young people to become active and engaged with the well being of themselves, their friends, their families, neighbours and local community. Through the extensive programme A. P. P. L. E run we assist young people to gain confidence and skills and find a path towards independence and adulthood.
    “I can always tell which young people have been to APPLE because they are so open-minded. They will try all activities and foods, and understand the importance of difference. APPLE provides them with an opportunity to experiment with art, food, friendships and sports in a tolerant and non-judgemental environment. The effect that this has on the young people is both striking and inspiring. ” Colin Brent- LBE Youth and Connexions
    A. P. P. L. E. Sessions of multi activity/events and experiences build confidence and increase life skills and work opportunities for young people. The young people’s participation provides the basis of the awards, training and work experiences we offer. There is also a continual programme running through all projects promoting healthy eating and an active life style.
    For many of our young people their lives are difficult and distressing, overwhelmed by problems they can see no solution to. We offer a path forward for young people, often breaking family and neighbourhood habits, raising personal expectations, making goals achievable.
    We are here for the long term.
