Our success rate is high, with over 90 % of the children and young people we work with completing education, securing work and moving home or to independence. Completely free from a life of disadvantage. With the support we are receiving from our donors, business and the government, we can continue to assist our clients and offer a high quality service – the same quality of service Anna received and every child/young person has a right to receive. If you wish to support our work get involved or donate, we look forward to hearing from you.
