Schools

School can be daunting for some children due to different barriers and circumstances. This may lead to young people disengaging from school. Our aim is to provide early intervention to these children. We run programmes with the aim to re-engage with the children. Or to work with children who may be at risk of leaving school with no positive outcome.

If you work within a school or with school children and wish to learn more please contact us today.
