1 in 3 children in our city grow up in povertywith a quarter growing up in out of work households

Unfortunately most of these children will go through life not having access to the opportunities that other children have. Most of the children we work with have never left Hull and many have never even been into the city centre. Some have never even seen Hull’s iconic Humber Bridge!

We believe that ALL children should get to see beyond the end of their street

 and experience what is out there. It is our mission to give them those golden opportunities to raise aspirations, help build their self-esteem, raise confidence and improve resilience.

Our learning experiences inspire, engage and educate

helping the children discover talents they never knew they had. We aim to put the fire in the children’s bellies that will help them to succeed!
