What we do
We have grown considerably from working with 12 young people on our first programme. We are proud that over 2000 participants have taken part in our programmes as of September 2018. We work with young people 14-24 in the Sheffield City Region. We run the NCS programme, which brings young people from all backgrounds together so they can work together to run projects that tackle the cities problems.
We also run specialised programmes to help young people with special educational needs and disabilities to take up opportunities they normally miss. We support the young people of Sheffield to carry on helping the city tackle problems through social action projects. These young people are tackling big issues, such as: • raising awareness of Child Sexual Exploitation • making a support network for young people with mental health issues • reducing knife crime We pride ourselves on our inclusivity and wherever possible we will design or redesign our programmes to ensure they meet the capability of the participant to ensure that they reach their full potential. Element has an underpinning principle “Element Society will always be inclusive”. We believe that all of these activities ensure diversity and availability to all and our statistics back that up.
