Agencies

Trust us to make a difference

From the police to schools, health to social services, agencies that work with SOFEA know that our approach to young people can deliver results others can’t by taking an approach others don’t. Make what we do part of what you offer.

You can see the change we make

Lots of the people who come to SOFEA have mental health or physical needs. Some have problems with drink or drugs. Some have seen parental mental health issues, substance abuse and domestic violence up close. They may be traumatised, and that results in long-term emotional issues, disruptive behaviour, chronic anxiety and depression.

SOFEA helps them. Through study, work and a focus on wellbeing, we build confidence. We instil empathy, respect and trust. We give them the tools to own their own positive change.

If you could see the difference between the time our young people arrive with us and the point they leave, you’d want to help. Please do.
