Transitions UK Approach and The Aspire Project

Transitions UK is a charity that provides vital support for disadvantaged young people aged 14-25, to ensure they transition onto healthy, happy and fulfilled futures. We run various projects that aim to support young people by instilling hope and self-belief, enabling them to change their lives:

  • Achieve – Supports young people with learning difficulties and special educational needs. Based in Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire
  • Aspire – Supports young people at risk of criminal exploitation and offending. Based in Hertfordshire and Enfield
  • Attain –Supports young care leavers. Based in Milton Keynes
  • Affirm – Support young people with emotional and mental health needs. (Opening Late 2019)

The ASPIRE project based in Watford and Stevenage, works with vulnerable young people aged 14-16, who have been highlighted of being at risk of (re)offending and criminal exploitation. We aim to support young people by supporting them through this complex part of their journey, by using a person-centred mentoring approaches and relational models tailored to individual needs.

We work with those who have been identified as such by Hertfordshire Police, by initial referral from schools and through other relevant agencies. Currently, there are limited spaces available on the project within Watford. Do you know a young person who may benefit from additional support?

Additionally, if you would like to support a young person in your community and can offer an hour or two of your time per week, we would love to hear from you.
