Right at the heart of Youthscape is our pioneering Luton team, passionate about seeing transformation in the lives of young people of all backgrounds. We have been supporting young people with their emotional, social and spiritual development in Luton since 1993, concentrating our efforts where there is most need and little or no other support available. This means working with young people who are in care or leaving care, those who are disengaging with the education system and who are at risk of becoming NEET, or those who are struggling with a range of social and emotional issues. Our approach in Luton involves delivering mentoring and therapeutic group work, specific courses, projects, art installations, alternative qualifications and detached work, a regular drop in cafe, residentials and Summer Camp. Each year we work in depth with over 400 of Luton's most vulnerable and disadvantaged young people, and more widely with a further 8,000.
