Who we are

Who we are

The journey to adulthood and independence is tough for everyone, but some people face a bumpier road than most.

We are a not-for-profit organisation passionate about supporting young people build a better future for themselves.  For some people the journey from school to work is a short and straight forward transition, but lots of others, especially those living with disadvantage, there can be lots of barriers to overcome along the way.

But we know, with a little help, most people will find their path towards a career that matches their talents and interests.

So how do we do that?
