Behind the numbers are real people. We work with some of the most vulnerable young people in the country and we hear of experiences that no child should have to go through.

Despite the challenges they face, we’ve yet to meet a young person who isn’t determined to create a positive future. 

Below we share some of the stories of young people we have challenged and inspired to realise their unique potential.
