Video About Our Story

Watch our story, showing how a small social start up has helped thousands of youth turn their lives around.  Our founder always believed that every child is capable to achieve and be amazing, however the more fortunate are often given the best opportunities and environment that make that success much easier.

OUR STORY

PARTNERSHIPS

Quite simply, we create the opportunity and environment to help disadvantaged youth turn their lives around. We focus on early stage prevention programmes, identifying young people who have been failed by society, and other traditional support structures. Our youth are between the age of 16 and 26 with the majority at school age. Read More

In 2015 we broke away from our private funding model, which was becoming increasingly challenging and unsustainable. We initially, converted our existing net wealth donor relationships into commercial / corporate partnerships to test the new model. Read More
