• Advantage


    Advantage is a unique partnership between two community assets and anchor institutions – the charitable arms of Premier League and English Football League clubs; known as Club Community Organisations (CCO), and local NHS. 

    Advantage’s programmes are proven to tackle and reduce Health Inequalities via social prescribing by providing weekly mental health and emotional wellbeing mentoring support. They provide key interventions and assistance for people to proactively manage their mental wellbeing, re-establish aspirations and a sense of connection. They have proven that Advantage successfully overcomes barriers people face to accessing traditional forms of mental health support, such as minority ethnicity, stigma, age, and gender.

    Their flagship prevention and early intervention programme has been designed by senior NHS strategists and CCO staff to increase access to NHS Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) and help tackle and reduce Health Inequalities by providing weekly mental health and emotional wellbeing mentoring support for young people aged 11-21.

  • Barnardo's


    At Barnardo’s they're goal is clear – to achieve better outcomes for more children.

    This means helping families – where possible before problems reach crisis point. It means keeping children safe from sexual abuse and exploitation, while supporting victims and survivors to recover and rebuild. It also means addressing children’s mental health and wellbeing, especially when so many have experienced trauma.

    Importantly, at Barnardo’s they now see themselves as a children’s health and social care charity. Historically health and care have often been seen as separate, but they know that for children, their health, wellbeing and safety are all inter-connected, and they only want to tell their story once.

    They also know the reality of children’s lives is constantly shifting – and so are the difficulties they face. Whether it’s threats online, criminal exploitation by gangs, or the needs of children arriving in the UK as refugees, they will be ready to respond and stand ready to help those most in need of their services.

    Key to this is their vision and ambition, championed by their founder Thomas Barnardo, to help create a world in which no child is turned away from the help they need. Within this is an enduring message of inclusion and a belief that help must be accessible to all children, regardless of their background or circumstances.

This data is used by the Office for National Statistics' Measuring National Well-being Programme as the life satisfaction measure of personal well-being for children.

Set up in 1992 by a group of people with eating disorders and their loved ones, SWEDA has grown to provide a range of services for people struggling with Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, Binge Eating Disorder and more. Our services also give support to family members and friends engaged in the difficult task of supporting someone close to them.

    Their stated aim is pro-recovery. Seeking to enable and empower people to improve their mental and physical health and wellbeing, thereby enriching their overall quality of life and helping them to be as healthy as possible. To facilitate this, SWEDA provides a range of services that offer information, guidance, training and support.

    SWEDA is user-led and based on the principles of self-help. At the heart of the organisation is a commitment to ensure that people who have lived experience of eating disorders are actively encouraged to contribute to the development and delivery of the service.

  • The Pears Family School

    The Pears Family School

    The Family School is a different type of school that provides opportunities for young people who currently present as unsuited or unable to meet the demands of mainstream school provision.  It is our conviction that many of these children have tremendous latent potential that an innovative school will nurture and release for the benefit of the wider society. 

    These children need early and sustained intervention to ensure that in the first instance they are not permanently excluded from school or, where they have already been excluded, to ensure their return to full time appropriate provision is rapid and sustained.

    The Family School will enable its pupils to:

    • progress academically;
    • improve their challenging behaviours;
    • recover their psychological and emotional well-being; and
    • gain resilience so that they continue with full-time education and return successfully to their mainstream school.

    The Family School has been developed through a new collaboration between the Anna Freud Centre and the former heads of a family education centre in Westminster, Neil Dawson and Brenda McHugh.
