Our TurnAround project in Essex supports the most vulnerable young people in society. We give them a second chance and help them to feel confident making their own decisions and their own life choices. We take them out into nature and help them heal.
Youth wellbeing is at its lowest level for at least eight years (Prince’s Trust Survey 2017). Young people feel that their life will amount to nothing and that they do not have the control to change it.
We know that in the UK, 34% of young people aged between 16-24 are feeling medium to high levels of anxiety throughout the day.
With our TurnAround programme we work with young people who are suffer domestic violence, whose parents are abusing drugs and alcohol and who might have experienced physical or sexual abuse among other life limiting issues – young people who are facing many challenges everyday. We are supporting these young people to end that cycle of destruction.
