Why it works
Underpinned by our belief in young people’s ability to use the tools we give them to shift their thinking and behaviour, and transform their lives.
Created through action research and honed through almost 30 years’ experience in the voluntary sector, youth offending services, schools and prisons .
We have outstanding trainers with immense experience in this field. Around a third of them have worked with us for over 10 years.
Bring courage and a willingness to open up about their experiences and take risks that allow them to work on their own relationship with conflict.
Why we exist
I always wondered why out of nearly 600 kids I seemed to be the only one that got bullied. Then one day I punched back. I felt instant relief. Nearly 7 years of bullying stopped from one violent action.
Some of our numbers
