Charity: The Second Chance Children's Charity
The charity works with children and young people from early age to 25. It's clients come from three principal backgrounds, they may have been abused, poverty stricken or have learning difficulties - sometimes all three! They come to us disengaged from society and failed by the system. We aim to give them a second chance. We fund the work entirely and do not receive any government or local authority money, our services are free to the young people. It is a one stop service point for the young people whatever they need to we will either provide directly or source for them, sometimes in innovative and original ways. Our services are many and varied and range from our Back to School Scheme, work experience, parenting classes, work experience, creative arts courses, mentoring and other role models, leisure activities such as angling to legal support and many other things.
