WHERE YOUR FEELINGS MATTER
because you matter
We are a registered charity that delivers evidence-based programmes and training to support vulnerable and disadvantaged young people in our local communities and the professionals that support them. The foundation of our work is emotional education and all of our activity promotes emotional literacy, emotional resilience and emotional intelligence. We transform lives by helping people to see that they can take control of their reactions by using emotional literacy and by becoming emotionally resilient. We believe that every young person deserves to be given the opportunity to reach their full potential.
