People in challenging circumstances

People with disabilities

We have a long track record of working with people with:

  • Mental health issues
  • Physical disabilities
  • Learning disabilities
  • Chronic health conditions

Many of whom are socially-isolated, many of whom are ex-military personnel, and many who have been unemployed for long periods of time.

At risk young people

We are experienced at supporting at risk young people, many of whom:

  • Are looked-after in care
  • Are not in education, employment or training
  • Are at risk of offending or who have been convicted of an offence
  • Have mental health issues
  • Have physical or learning disabilities
  • Have been excluded from mainstream education

Asylum-seekers and refugees

We support asylum-seekers and refugees, in the community and in secure settings. Often, they:

  • Have been through trauma and displacement
  • Are experiencing great uncertainty in their lives
  • Have English a foreign language

People convicted of offences

We have a well-established reputation for our work with offenders, particularly for our work with ‘hard to reach’ groups, including:

  • ‘Vulnerable Prisoners’
  • People with mental health conditions or personality disorders
  • Ex-military personnel
  • Self-harmers
  • People not engaging in education and work
  • People recovering from substance misuse
