We strongly believe that everyone benefits when you help young people to develop their character and values through activities that stretch and mature them. We also know that when young people engage with others at a range of levels in their communities it builds confidence and improves empathy for other’s lives.

We actively promote and encourage you to explore ideas that improve all aspects of the charity’s work in pursuit of its charitable aims.
