Supporting young people

Our mission is to provide help, support and advice to children in care and young care leavers so that they can take control of their lives and unleash their potential. Each one has dreams, hopes and unique abilities. We help them to move towards becoming the person they want to be - towards a life well lived.

Across our programmes of work at Become, we aim to build young people's emotional wellbeing and resilience to help them live powerfully and purposefully. 

Our Care Advice Line is a confidential service that children in care and young care leavers can call for free, offering down-to-earth information and advice. The Become Coaching Programme aims to achieve profound, positive and sustainable improvement in the wellbeing of care-experienced young people. And Propel raises young care leavers' aspirations to continue their education beyond the age of 16.

"The emotional support, financial support and encouragement from Become meant so much and helped me through. The most important thing was for me not to give up and I couldn’t have done that without encouragement."
