" This organisation has supported and advised me how to engage with my son who was heading down a path of destruction. Their knowledge and experience is this field empowered me to challenge my son and set boundaries in a non-judgemental way. This organisations interventions and interactions with my son & I was delivered in an empathetic, non-judgemental way. By providing 1-2-1 support to my son has motivated him to return to college in addition to raising his self-esteem and self-confidence. My son has now begun to recognise his self worth. I can't thank Shane and his team enough. Their professionalism coupled with their knowledge of youth culture and the challenges that our young people face is why I would recommend them in the future. "
" The classes and support you guys offer have been amazing. My CV looked pretty bleak and boring before it was looked over and amended. Most likely why I rarely received any job interviews. The MMA classes themselves are great. It offers me a chance to get out and be sociable, which I struggle with. It also provides me with a chance to pursue a sport that I am very much interested in, unable to afford £70 a month to go to a mixed martial arts gym. I would really like the classes to continue, as I would no doubt keep attending. "
