Education Specialist - United Kingdom

You don't understand what it's like to be me – why should I trust you?

Fresh Start in Education work with some of society’s most vulnerable young people.

For those who have complex SEN, SEMH needs and other barriers to education, school and the world as a whole can feel like an alien place that causes anxiety, dread and fear.

Having spent considerable time out of and unable to access education, these young people can fall further behind their peers with little hope of bridging the gap. That’s where Fresh Start in Education and more specifically, you can help.
