Charity Partner 2019/20
Our local charity partner in this area is SMASH Youth Project
SMASH'S core work is carried out through one to one mentoring over a yearlong period and provides support and encouragement to young people who are in need of help to reach their full potential.
The aim of the mentoring work that SMASH undertakes is to increase the young person’s confidence, self-esteem and motivation; empower them to make their own decisions; increase the number of young people in education, training and work; reduce anti-social behaviour and offending; encourage a positive identity with young people, their families and local communities; and to achieve good quality relationships for young people with adults to build trust and provide effective and positive role models.
