Chance UK

Our mission
 
To improve the lives of primary school  children with behavioural difïculties who are at risk of developing anti-social or criminal behaviour by offering them tailored,  one-to-one mentoring with a carefully  screened, trained and supervised adult.
  
How we achieve it
 
We do this by providing one-to-one mentoring for children aged 5-11 with behavioural difficulties. Our volunteer mentors raise children's self esteem via activities such as sports, visiting museums, making scrapbooks...anything the child may be interested in.
 
We work in a solution-focused way, so our mentors and staff focus on the child's strengths and what they do well, rather than their negative behaviour.
 
Many of the children we work with are on the verge of being permanently excluded from school. This is frequently the start point for anti-social and later criminal behaviour in a young person's life, and our early intervention work prevents this.
 
We work closely with local schools to improve life for the child, their family and their classmates.
 
No other organisation does the work that we do in the way that we do it with the age group we do it with. Our partnership model of replicating our work is also unique.
