‘Despite the challenges that our students face – such as dysfunctional family life, behavioural problems, mental health issues and substance misuse – we support them to ensure that they aren’t permanently disadvantaged in future.
We are optimistic for the people we help but we could do more, including providing mentoring, skills for self-employment, digital learning and work placements with businesses, and supporting young women who have experienced domestic violence’.
