Transitions UK – Supporting disadvantaged youth at risk aged 14 to 25 yrs

Transitions UK supports disadvantaged youth at risk aged 14 to 25 years, 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.

Firewalkers raise vital funds to help Transitions UK

Twenty fearless firewalkers from Hitchin and the surrounding area walked over red-hot, 800 degree coals on 23 February at the Hitchin Priory to help raise funds for us.

Together they raised over £1,500 which will enable us to continue to fund the Aspire Project in Hertfordshire.

Launched in November 2017 in association with Hertfordshire Police, this project helps young people in Hertfordshire who are most at risk of offending, ensuring they receive the support they so desperately need.

One of the brave firewalkers, Krushna Makwana, said: “It was an exhilarating event and it personally enabled me to overcome some fears and issues. There was a great atmosphere and a friendly and warm welcome. I absolutely loved it!”

We are very grateful to all those who braved the cold to come and help us raise money to help disadvantaged young people.  We are planning on running another sponsored firewalk in November so do get in touch if you are interested.
