Act for Change
Registered Charity Number: 1119291
Act For Change is a small charity (Reg. No. 1119291) that helps young people and young adults engage the world. We work with young people, their families and social setting to develop and model intervention strategies furthering inclusive, socially supportive community. Our focus is on underlying individual and collective trauma: recognising its presence and long-term effects, offering tools to process it, building resilience and nurturing a more active participation in society - in school, college and community life.
Our research indicates clearly that unprocessed personal and or collective trauma may lie behind much apparent “lack of engagement” as many “hard to reach” individuals, families and groups of young people. This can include historical trauma (eg migration/conflict histories) as well as more recent experiences sometimes re-awoken or reignited by experiences with us in our role as local authorities. Addressing the background trauma carefully and respectfully, building resilience, can be first steps towards building a lasting community life.
Our service offers low to medium intensity interventions 1:1, family and group work by a multidisciplinary team and specialist trained therapists as required to facilitate positive behavioural changes that will endure after the intervention has ended.
