The Support of local business community is PRICELESS & PRECIOUS in helping us to deliver our innovative work to vulnerable young people .It also empowers us to pioneer new initiatives such as developing a life-coach for 1:1 work with chaotic young men ‘at risk’ to reduce the number of INCREASING SUICIDE IN YOUNG MALES.
