Why should this be listed?

The organisation is a social enterprise which aims to meet a very real and growing need. Sadly, mental health struggles are rising in children and adults year on year. The current education system alongside the NHS has been and will be under a great deal of pressure, with limited resources to meet the needs of young people who have complex needs and anxiety issues. Often, these individuals slip through the net or end up disengaged from school and their wider network, which can have a devastating effect on their lives.
