Chance UK started providing our service in Waltham Forest in 2012 as part of the ‘Realising Ambition’ project. Realising Ambition is a UK-wide Big Lottery Fund programme. This is investing £25 million to replicate 25 projects that are improving the evidence base of what works to divert children and young people from pathways into offending.
Chance UK works with 8–11 year-olds in Waltham Forest. We have built a high profile in Waltham Forest and are working very successfully with many children and schools. We are looking for more mentors in Waltham Forest, so please do get in touch if you’d like to mentor in the borough.
