OUR VISION

To give every young person a chance to realise their potential.

OUR MISSION

By creating a safe, supportive environment where young people can learn barbering and hair & beauty. Our unique training programme also includes essential education in Maths, English, and Customer Service, along with lifesaving mental health awareness training that will equip students with the skills they need to support those they will work with in their communities.

“95% of our students go on to further education or paid employment.”

Not everyone learns in the same way, so we adapt our training programme to suit each individual. We take the time to understand your specific learning needs and develop a programme of study that works for you.

SUPPORT OUR WORK

We are keen to hear from any individuals, businesses, NGOs, charities, or other organisations who are interested in supporting the work we do. We would love to secure more funding so that we could help even more vulnerable young people take steps towards a better future. We are also open to partnering with like-minded organisations who are looking to raise awareness around key issues.

“Everyone can rise above their circumstances and achieve success if they are dedicated to and passionate about what they do.”
Nelson Mandela
