We believe everyone has the right to grow into the best version of themselves they can be and some times this requires some nurturing in the right enviromnent. We love seeing the potential in every child become a realisation. That’s our ‘Why’.
What We Do?
- Youth engagement centres (School mini-bus collection & drop-off service)
- Half-Term multi sports and activity camps for primary/secondary students.
- Primary & Secondary School Inclusion & mentor staffing
- Social, Industry & Elite pathway opportunities towards a brighter future
“Our objective is to create social, sporting and work experiences that will install confidence and motivation for children providing them with opportunities and pathways towards a positive future.”
The Changing Lives CIC operates a variety of programmes that all work together in providing opportunities to young people towards a positive future.
Working within Schools to provide tailored mentoring programmes on a 1:1 or small group learning basis. The aim of the mentor is to offer school inclusion for challenging students, assisting them with classroom and work experience learning.
Youth Engagement Centres
Our Centres offer vulnerable children of all backgrounds and ethnicity a place to relax and participate in sports, mentoring & workshops after school. The community transport mini bus collects referred students from local schools to safely transport them to & from the centre.
Sports Coaching & Pathway Opportunities
With the variety of partnerships the Changing Lives project has, sports coaching workshops is a key element in providing the hook and distraction away from every day issues our students face. Opportunities of further progression towards grass roots participation and elite pathways in sports are fundamental.
Our workshops include: Link Asset Service Risk & Reward, Essex Police crime awareness, NHS medical tuition, Mental health Scheme’s, Sports Officiating, College introductions & Qualifications.
