What we do

We offer a range of services to give people the opportunity to gain the experience, skills and confidence needed to make positive, lasting change in their lives.

Many of the people Move On work with have low confidence; little or no work experience; poor physical or mental health; experience of care; experience of the criminal justice system; or are in recovery from addiction.

While our services are as diverse as the individuals we support, our aim is simple – to offer everyone an equal chance to reach their full potential, no matter what barriers they face.


We match volunteer mentors to young people aged 14-25 to support them to achieve personal goals, increase their confidence and build their positive social networks.
