Neil gave up a role as Assistant Headteacher and his career in mainstream education in order to provide better support for vulnerable young people. Karen moved from a role in the council’s Behaviour Support Team and brought her experience in mentoring and small group work.
Together they worked toward the vision of ‘every vulnerable young person finding hope and a future’. There have been many changes since those early days, but the belief remains the same: that the transformative power of relationship, risk and adventure can reduce school exclusions.
Ten years after those early days, we’ve happily found a home in Cardiff too. Quickly learning about the many activities offered in the city and beyond towards the Bannau Brycheiniog, a team was built up along with a new base to welcome pupils from many different schools.
