Raising Your Game

Our work with young people with a learning disability at risk of offending


Raising Your Game was a 5-year pilot project running from 2009 - 2014, funded by the Big Lottery and in partnership with Mencap, I CAN and Nacro.

The project worked with young people aged 14 – 25 who have a learning disability and/or communication difficulties, and who are at risk of or involved in offending behaviour.
