Highlights is a grassroots organisation, providing out-of-school and holiday activities for disadvantaged children and young people (C&YP) since 2008.

We work with local schools to determine which C&YP are neediest and stand to gain most from our programme of: youth groups, mentoring support, activities, outings, events and more.
