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

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.

Swimathon makes a splash!

A big thank you to Steve Hague for organising the swimathon at Hitchin Indoor Pool on Sunday 12th February. Thanks also to Steve’s daughter Molly-Mae and to Robert Warren for coming along to support the swim. It was a pretty cold day, so I think everyone was pleased it wasn’t an outdoor event!

There was lots of enthusiasm and all participants, including several young people with special needs on our Achieve Project, managed over 30 lengths, approximately 750m, which I think we can all agree is a phenomenal achievement. These kinds of events are so great for getting the local community involved and raising awareness of Transitions UK and how we need your help.

To all of you, very well done and thank you again for supporting Transitions UK. Your swims and donations will help us support more young people who really need us and continue what we do.
