Supporting young people aged 13-19 from our centre and on an outreach basis
Delivering a range of services for young people
Delivering sports programmes for unemployed young people
Approved provider of offsite education
The Beck provides targeted support to disadvantaged young people aged 13 - 19 living mainly in East Leeds and delivers a range of services including: intensive one-to-one support; group work; off-site education; award-winning sports activities; sexual health; counselling; mediation and parent support.
Services are delivered from our centre in Killingbeck (near Asda) and on an outreach basis in schools and a range of community settings in East Leeds.
Since opening the doors in July 2009 we have developed a good reputation with young people, schools and other organisations. We have achieved approved provider status to deliver offsite education, and deliver accredited courses via the Open College Network.
The Beck works to the ‘under one roof’ principle, where young people are able to access a range of services to enable their needs to be addressed without having to tell their story many times. Consequently the staff team has a range of specialist expertise and relevant qualifications, which enables them to deliver the quality and variety of services necessary to meet the needs of young people referred to the project.
