Motivations and Inspirations

We are motivated by the belief that no one should be left behind, whatever their circumstances. We believe that everyone needs another opportunity and that the most vulnerable children, with our help and support, can transform their future. Equally that it is never too late to transform the lives of individuals.

Our motivation also comes from the personal experiences of our team, who themselves have experienced disaffection and isolation. Most of all the transformation of the lives and opportunities for young people we work with.

As you’ve invested your time here today to read this page, we would like to personally invite you to see our presentation and look forward to a time when we can meet with you – so you can see for yourself exactly what we have to offer.

Inspiration

Our inspiration comes from the success stories of young people turning their lives around for good. our inspiration also comes from seeing children and young people and families from low income households access leisure activities through our projects. for example trips to the London Eye, Chessington world of adventures and other such places.

Our inspiration comes from developing young peoples’ skills and aspirations, giving them hope for the future.

The one to one support enabled mentors to point children and young people in the right direction!

Families have been fantastic as well giving us the opportunity to work with them and their children
