We promote the principles of informal education through our own support network to encourage independence and improved personal development.

Service-users receive regular one to one support from our support workers, who are qualified to Level 3 in Information Advice & Guidance. Working towards increased confidence and independence a personalised programme of support is developed to individual needs whereby achievable goals are established towards managing finance, leading a healthy lifestyle, education, employment, family, and community engagement.

As a recognised partner of the YMCA George Williams College in London, we are also able to deliver and mentor individuals wishing to gain nationally recognised and accredited qualifications in youth and community work.

We take great pride in the positive outcomes of our service-users, and the ways in which we have helped improve the quality of their lives.

To see individuals regain their confidence and become increasingly independent to make progressively more substantial decisions concerning their wellbeing is a great achievement and the keystone of our service.

"The tutors were very knowledgeable, welcoming and supportive throughout and always encouraged us to reflect on our own practice. I felt that this really helped develop my self-awareness." - Informal Learning Level 2 student
