We are a UK registered youth development charity dedicated to helping young people to fulfil their potential  through learning to skateboard

We do this by providing accessible and affordable (or free) opportunities for children and young people (especially those who are disaffected and at risk of being socially excluded) with an opportunity to learn to skateboard, in a structured and supportive environment.


We help young people develop a positive sense of identity, belonging and connectedness with each other, the community and society as a whole.


Our programme boosts a young person's confidence, self-esteem and the knowledge that they can make positive things happen in their life.

Who are we?


Learning to skateboard teaches young people the need for dedication, perseverance and commitment to achieve a goal.
