In today's climate, life can be challenging for young people at the best of times. For those who have not had a great start in life, it can be even tougher - with adverse childhood experiences linked to both poorer mental and physical health outcomes further down the line*.
To avoid these negative consequences, early intervention and support is crucial. That's why - as a minimum - we donate 25% of our net profts to charities that help promote the mental health and well-being of disadvantaged or vulnerable young adults in difficult times.
Wherever possible, we also offer free mentoring sessions to low income young people (aged 18-24) who have either been in care or experienced other difficulties in their lives - enabling them to increase their coping skills and resilience, and move past their challenges in ways that allow them to thrive.
We really couldn't do this without you - so when you use our services, not only will you benefit, but you will be also making a positive difference to the life of a young person too.
