Seeds4Success is a youth work charity based in Mere, which provides opportunities for personal and social development for young people living in South West Wiltshire. We enable young people to access programmes that develop practical skills, enhance education, improve employability, provide recreational activities, conserve the natural environment and strengthen the local community.
We offer a wide range of positive leisure time opportunities for young people throughout the week as well as targeted, 1 to 1 support to individuals who are at risk of becoming or who already are Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET). Through engagement in our projects young people develop social and practical skills, form positive friendships and relationships with trusted adults and their peers, gain confidence, self-esteem and achieve qualifications and awards.
As a rural charity we understand the challenges of transport, so we provide a minibus or support with travel to the majority of our projects, when requested in advance.
Our Mission is “To support the personal development of young people through the delivery of training and practical volunteering opportunities”. We encourage young people to value the importance of social action and local involvement, empowering them to be active and responsible members of their communities, helping to shape the services and opportunities available to them and their peers.
"Young people are the heart of Seeds4Success. They are who the charity exists to support, and they are the people who ensure the charity continues to exist."
