For over 25 years, Grit (previously known as Youth at Risk) has been working with young people experiencing disadvantage and living in challenging circumstances, along with the professionals and volunteers who work with them, in communities, schools, prisons and local authorities.

We have worked with over 18,000 young people and 20,000 adults in communities across the UK.

Our premise is that when you change your thinking, you can change your world. And our programmes are designed to do just that. We work with young people and the adults that support them, to change the way they think so that they can radically alter their outcomes in life.
