Delivered in partnership with the West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner, our unique programme protects young people from criminal exploitation.

Every child deserves to feel safe, secure, and hopeful. But right now, thousands of young people across the UK are at risk of being exploited by criminals.

At Climb, we’re here to change things. Our transformative service is the first of its kind, helping children to develop new skills, form real friendships, and recognise people or situations that might be dangerous. 

We work with schools, the police, social care, activity providers, and others to build safer communities, supporting young people who are missing school or college, have run away from home or care, or at risk of being forced into criminal activity.

The support Climb offers

At Climb, we work with young people under 17 before they’re exploited, helping them stay safe. Through sports, arts, and more, we offer young people new opportunities. These diversionary activities empower young people to make positive choices about their futures. 

Through Climb, young people can access sports, dance, arts, music, and more. It’s a chance to find out what they’re passionate about and build their resilience, so that they can deal with the challenges they’re facing.
