Kids Inspire helps disadvantaged young people turn their lives around and gives them back their future.
We support young people across Essex who are at an educational, social and/or economic disadvantage resulting from trauma or emerging mental health issues. For example they may have experienced sexual or domestic abuse, separation anxiety or significant loss.
