Transitions UK


Transitions UK supports disadvantaged youth at risk aged 14 to 25 yrs, to ensure they transition to healthy, happy and fulfilled adult lives  

Disadvantage among young people in the UK is rife; be that through disabilities and special needs, economic and social circumstance, emotional and mental health issues, those in care or leaving care, those excluded from school or at risk of offending .

The challenges faced by these youth at risk within what has been called a “lost generation” means that they often struggle to transition to a productive and happy adult life and that the cycle of disadvantage continues.


Transitions UK’s unique vision and approach directly addresses that picture and is underpinned by a proven belief that positive, supportive relationships, together with a social and personal development toolkit, are key to breaking that cycle of disadvantage and to helping youth at risk build their own positive futures.


Our projects will turn young lives around and help produce a better society for us all to live in.


We are beginning our development by helping young disadvantaged young people in Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Hertfordshire and North London and will later expand our services to cover other communities throughout England and Wales.

Convicts at large in Stevenage!!

Many thanks to Neil Ewer of Infologic IT and to Mohsen Hafeez and Chris Palmer for agreeing to  be locked up in jail for the day to raise funds for Transitions UK.

They wont get out until they have each raised £500. Lots of fun but serious money for us as a charity. We receive no statutory funding and rely upon individual and company generosity to keep providing our services.
