WE ARE A SOCIAL ENTERPRISE SMARTPHONE REPAIR SERVICE STAFFED BY YOUNG EX-OFFENDERS AND YOUTH AT RISK
There are too many young people in our society who feel pushed into crime to provide for their families. It's because our system is broken.
This crime can become violent. Knife crime offences resulting in injury have increased by 22% in the last year, and 85% of violent offenders are aged between 16 and 29. These young people are 4 times more likely to be victims of crime.
Trapped young people need credible options and a way out.
Employment is the single most effective factor in preventing and reducing offending. Good employment gives people choices.
Our mission is to use smartphone repair to create opportunities for at-risk youth to break down their attitudinal barriers to employment - to realise that income, belonging and self-worth gained through legitimate work.
We also strive to reduce skills-based barriers to work, paving the way for their transition to employment.
