Partnering for Positive Sustainable Change

Our approach to developing a range of positive outcomes for children and young people is always underpinned by the promotion of wellbeing and the prevention of mental health problems.

We have worked with partner organisations and a range of settings to meet priority outcomes in a range of areas.

These include preventing children and young people’s mental illness, NEET prevention, crime prevention, youth and community and tackling physical inactivity in children and young people.

Settings we have worked with include charities, social enterprises, youth sector, universities, FE colleges, criminal justice, health sector, welfare to work sector and the voluntary and community settings.

Collaboration is one of our core organisational values and we are proud to work in partnership with a number of children and young people’s organisations nationally.

We train young people's organisations in our approach to coaching, enabling them to increase their capacity to provide early intervention and prevention, through the services they deliver. We believe in empowering organisations to take the practical tools, techniques and approaches to developing wellbeing and embed them in their service delivery.
