Focus has been inspiring young people, aged 13- 25 years, to make positive changes in their lives and in their communities for over 30 years!
We do this by creating an environment where young people feel safe, loved and appreciated for who they are. Through taking part in our projects they gain important employability and life skills. They are able to build their self-esteem and confidence to step into their greatness, and are empowered to find their voice and become the positive change they want to see in the world.
At Focus we have an open-door policy, as we recognise the importance of EVERYBODY having someone to talk to, somewhere to go and something positive to do, no matter what their background or circumstances are. By bringing different people together we open our eyes to new possibilities and interests, which raises aspirations and often breaks cycles of deprivation.
They get to leave the rest of the day or their life behind! Once they are at Focus the day is reset, it’s a new start!
Although our doors are open to ALL young people, we work with high numbers of those living in poverty and/or facing serious issues around mental health and child protection.
