Our purpose is

'to help transform and improve the lives of young people who are struggling, or have struggled in life so far, whether it be academically, socially or economically. We aim to promote a sense of well being and purpose, so they feel they are better equipped to progress, move on and start to lead a fulfilling life.'

In school holiday time we run more 'fun'skills and techniques based activity sessions. Most of these are open to all young people. However, in the past we have also worked with Beds Cerebral Palsy Society, Taylor House, YMCA etc. (With activities ranging from purely fun / interest sessions to courses with small qualifications.)

The activities we run include Angling (Fishing! and bait / tackle making); Photography; Estate Maintenance / Construction sessions (Building and installing platforms and gates, creating and maintaining paths and steps, cutting back, clearing and strimming trees, bushes and vegetation etc); Forestry / Survival skills; Indoor / Outdoor cooking; Mountain Bike riding and maintenance; other sports related activities; Arts and Crafts; Pond dipping; Bird / Animal watching and related walks; Gardening on our allotment, Work experience opportunities; taking young people to Zoo's and Safari Parks; as well as working on CV's, writing application letters for jobs and college courses, interview techniques, researching job and college courses.

(We have 6 vehicles including one minibus, which enables some transport capability for wheelchair users.)

We have been able to help a lot of young people whilst we have been operating and in this academic year the vast majority of our young people have come away with at least one or more qualifications.
