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  

RADIO Interview Inspire FM

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.

Adam: Why I enjoy coming to Transitions

Many thanks to Adam for sharing this with us! A great testament to him and all the fantastic work that our volunteers and support staff do.

“I enjoy coming to Transitions every week because it gives me the chance to learn new skills such as cooking, arts and crafts, and communicating with other people. While being at transitions I have made lots of friend such as Sadiq, Therhea, Safoora, Taylor and Wasim. I really enjoy getting involved with the sessions that are provided by Sadiq(my lead volunteer) because everyone is so kind and everyone gets on well with one another. My favourite volunteers are Sadiq and Therhea because they are easy to get along with and are now my friends. I like Sadiq because he does his job well as a volunteer and I like Therhea because she is a nice and caring person and she is someone you can have a joke with. Transitions is a great project which helps people who are going through a tough time in their lives or just need extra help with things. I get to learn new things and have fun at the same time. Recently I had lots of fun at our end of year party. I am really enjoying Transitions and I think it is the best thing I have been involved in my entire life.”
