Our mission statement
Supporting and educating offenders, ex-offenders, those at risk of offending and others with dyslexia-related learning difficulties
Our objectives (in our Constitution)
1) To promote for the public benefit the education, support and rehabilitation of offenders, ex-offenders and those who are deemed to be at risk of offending (and their families) with learning difficulties related to dyslexia or head-injuries in such ways as the charity trustees think fit, including (but not limited to):
a. The provision of skills training and educational, personal and social development programmes.
b. The provision of ‘transition’ centres providing support, advice, guidance and training.
2) To advance the education of the public regarding dyslexia and similar learning difficulties in such ways as the charity trustees see fit, including (but not limited to):
a. The provision of outreach and other services for the benefit of schools, colleges and other institutions.
b. Providing or facilitating the learning and skills of children and adults in any setting who experience difficulties related to dyslexia or head injuries
NB At this stage in our development we are focussing mainly on the first objective.
We aim to help all participants in our projects to:
- know and understand their strengths as well as their learning difficulties
- learn new ways to develop their literacy skills
- realise and enjoy the opportunities they have and the choices they can make
- develop new aspirations for their future
- achieve their goals and transform their lives
