The Switch Project (11-16yrs)

The Switch Project nurtures young people’s emotional and social development through early intervention, mentoring and support. They offer support to those considered vulnerable to educational disengagement or are struggling to cope in school. Their aim is to provide a positive, supportive environment in which young people can gain new coping skills, build confidence in themselves and others, whilst ultimately returning back into mainstream education.
