Brathay Trust work with young people to help them unlock their potential. Many of them are vulnerable; lacking the confidence to find work or training, managing the transition from living in care to independence, risking exploitation in unhealthy relationships.
The charity brings young people together in groups to learn and support each other or providing them with one-to-one support to turn their lives around. This takes place in the community and at residential centres in the Lake District. Residential courses give young people a chance to challenge themselves, reflect on their lives and see themselves in a new light. The charity believes all young people have their own strengths and that self awareness and taking action are the first steps to transforming lives.
