Fairbridge

Fairbridge is a provision which works with young people aged 13-25 that other organisations find difficult to engage – giving them the motivation, self-confidence and skills they need to change their lives.

 

They achieve positive outcomes with young people with multiple needs, such as substance misuse or a history of offending and support them to achieve something tangible;  returning to education/schooling, starting college courses, gaining  qualifications and finding employment.

 

Fairbridge opens an opportunity for young people to improve their confidence and self esteem, and if they want to, to work towards going to college. Their approach is holistic, working to address each individual’s unique needs. They offer a variety of courses

 

While Fairbridge offers a wide range of developmental activities, the contact with the outreach workers and development tutors equally important to the young person succeeding in life.  They never turn anyone away, and offer one to one support when they, or the young person feels it’s needed. They keep regular contact with young people and welcome them back to the programme once they have moved on if needs be.

 

Many Young People don’t respond well to a classroom situation, and at Fairbridge they are always in small groups and get treated as individuals and receive support tailored to individual needs and levels of support required.
