About us

We believe that every young person should have a safe place to stay. Every night we provide a safe home for over 260 vulnerable young people. We have a range of housing to meet the needs of each young person, from emergency accommodation schemes to longer term provision and we support each young person to develop their skills to move into work, education or training and progress into independent living.

We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy the benefits of physical exercise, from improved health to better education and life chances. Young people should be able to lead active lives – that’s why we’re committed to creating healthy, sustainable communities in which they can fulfil their aspiration. We offer a range of information and activities to encourage young people to develop healthier lifestyles.

We believe that every young person should be able to fulfil their potential. Helping young people to gain the confidence to make decision about their own lives is an important part of our work. As is providing an environment in which they can flourish. We offer a range of education, skills–based training and apprenticeship schemes.

We believe that every family should have the support they need to develop and lead more fulfilling lives. Being part of a healthy, stable family gives a young person the best start in life. We offer a range of services for young people and their families through which they can receive professional information, advice, accommodation and support.

We believe that every young person should have someone they can trust. We support every young person through difficult times with a wide range of services. In each case our aim is enabling the young person to grow and develop in every aspect of their life.
