About Leaps & Bounds
Leaps & Bounds Trust is a registered charity and company limited by guarantee. Its delivery remit, and governing principles, is to work with at-risk young people to turn their lives round through a combination of intense & sustained personal development, ongoing pastoral support and the highest standard of artistic, cultural or sporting engagement.
Who we are & what we do
Leaps & Bounds delivered the acclaimed Ballet Hoo! project bringing ballet and personal development to a group of vulnerable teenagers. Building on this success we are developing new projects.
We work exclusively with disadvantaged and at risk young people aged 14 to 19 typically drawn from areas of social and economic deprivation. We use a unique combination of three ingredients to generate extraordinary changes in the lives of these young people:
- Personal intervention, uncovering issues for each young person, challenge their behaviours, and help them to see and make different choices;
- Involvement in cultural projects of the highest standard, working with professional artists and sportspeople;
- Ongoing one-to-one pastoral support and personal development from locally based Life Coaches.
