Welcome to our website!

 Welcome to our site, this site is dedicated to Mutual Assistance (MA), where by one marginalised group assists another to the mutual benefit of both groups. This has manifested itself in our current Transfer of Innovation (TOI) based on our mobility projects both funded by the Leonardo da Vinci programs. The projects entail recruiting and sending marginalised groups from the UK including ex offenders, former substance abusers and those in or leaving care, to assist orphans in Bulgaria or Street Children in Turkey; for what is described by the young people as a `life changing experience`

We are an advocate of Maslow`s Hierarchy  of needs, believing our projects touch all involved as Maslow wrote,  `We are not in a position in which we have nothing to work with. We already have capacities, talents, direction, missions, callings.`

80% of the participants upon their return enter in to employment, education or volunteering, the vast majority of the remainder improve their circumstances for eventual progression in to such career paths. It is due to these results that through the TOI we are now transfer our project to our partners in Spain and Italy, creating two legacies a European wide database as a hub for promoting and engaging organisations to undertake a MA project and a guide on how to implement such projects.
