Enhancing the lives of young people in Croydon _______________________________________________________ Expanding our support We are acutely aware of the problems faced today by vulnerable young people in Croydon, from low achievement to [poor prospects] [losing hope over life chances] and involvement in gang culture. Reedham is expanding. Our vision is to help more children, more effectively, by focusing on a wider group of beneficiaries. Developing our new programme We have exciting plans to support these young people in their local environment: Developing support through STATE DAY SCHOOLS; and Supporting positive activities OUTSIDE SCHOOL Aims To help keep vulnerable young people SAFE, both in and out of school whilst raising their ACHIEVEMENTS and ASPIRATIONS, and developing CONFIDENCE and LIFE SKILLS and ensure every young person is able to fulfil their potential. Next steps We are very proud of all that Reedham has achieved to date. This expansion is the logical next step for our charity which over 175 years has already evolved in response to social needs. Alongside our boarding model, we are now entering a new phase. Offering the same quality of service, we will continue to support all the children we currently fund alongside developing and expanding our children's services offer.
