Objectives

We provide a range of educational, arts, sports, and vocational services for disadvantaged and vulnerable young people who live in the London Borough of Hounslow. 

Our beneficiaries have multiple needs including deprivation, behavioural issues, family dysfunction, and disengagement with schools and mainstream services. 

Our services improve the learning and development of disadvantaged young people, particularly those with behavioural, learning, and mental health difficulties so that they are able to make positive life choices and fulfil their potential. 

Activities

We provide a range of services including: 

  • Projects for young women aged 13-18 who are on the fringes of gangs or criminal groups
  • Intensive referral youth programme for ages 8-12 with challenging behaviour
  • Weekend vocational and eco-therapy activities for ages 13-18
  • After-school independent living activities.

 

All projects provide one-to-one emotional support.
