The HEROES project allows young people to take part in group work, individual mentoring, cultural trips, and free residentials. All activities are based on the young people’s interests and what they like to do.

We want young people from all communities and abilities to get involved in the HEROES Project so they can develop their confidence, have new experiences and build positive relationships that will last. We want the young people we work with to have an amazing experience they won’t forget.
