What we do
Switch Up exists to empower Nottingham’s young people, children and young adults to break the cycle of offending and reoffending.
Switch Up uses tried and tested mentoring techniques along with physical training to engage Nottingham’s young people in positive activity and to steer them away from the circle of crime and gang-criminality.
We deliver mentoring, counselling, accredited non-formal education, personal development workshops, and through-the-gate resettlement mentoring for young people serving custodial sentences.
Through our programmes we help young people to reflect on their lives and to express positive targets for the future.
