An award winning Leicestershire charity, established in 1986, we use arts, media and music activities to make positive life changes for disadvantaged young people by supporting them to develop creative, social and employability skills.
For young people who lack opportunities or have challenges in their lives it can be hard to look forward to a positive future. Our projects help them get back on track when have gone wrong, build the confidence and resilience to change negative or risky behaviours, and progress to lead more fulfilling lives. Different agencies refer young people to our projects and our work responds to and tackles local and national issues such as anti-social behaviour and unhealthy lifestyles.
