25+ Years Experience in Drug Education

Our vision is to create cohesive communities, improve lives and build a safer future for everyone.

Dedicated, Experienced and Trusted

In the last  28 years, over 500,000 young people have benefitted by engaging with one of our programmes.  Because our programmes are proven to create a real change in attitudes and behaviour, we are the go-to organisation for over 300 schools per year, as well as the Police, Prison Service, Community groups and the British Army.

Targeted Outcomes Framework

Life Skills ‘graduates’ develop the skills that are essential for overall personal growth, effective communication, and successful interactions in various aspects of life, including work, relationships, and community involvement. Developing and honing these abilities is proven to improve overall well-being and positive outcomes.

We’re on a mission to empower every child with the resilience and skills to make safe choices in any risky situation. Our work provides the foundational skills that underpin fulfilled, happy lives by increasing access to high-quality social skills education for those who need it most.

Developing emotional intelligence and interpersonal skills by modelling real life situations for young people to work through.

Drug and substance misuse, knife and hate crimes do not happen in a vacuum; there is a journey that leads to someone carrying a knife, taking drugs or drinking too much, all decisions made, whether consciously or unconsciously.

Dame Carol Black, in her review, stated, “The financial cost of drug misuse is absolutely staggering.  It costs society almost £20 billion a year, something like £350 for every man, woman and child in England.  But the human toll is incalculably larger, measured not in pounds lost but in lives shattered.”  Statistics show that 11% of young people have tried drugs at some point, and it is estimated that 17,521 males in the population are likely to report weapon carrying or use at the age of 14.

We know that significantly increasing access to high-quality social skills and prevention education in the areas that need it most can have a significant effect on these statistics.   Through the provision of long-term (multiple-year), evidence-informed, impact-driven programmes we can make a tangible difference to the outcomes of young people in the long term.
