Endure Mentoring is an award-winning social justice charity using expertise and real-life past experiences to empower people who are not getting the help they need. Are service users are often disadvantages by poverty, exploited, abuse, addiction or mental health problems, caught up in crime, or a combination of these issues and others.
We show people there is a way to build a better future – for themselves and those they care about them. Helping to create pathways which offer support, advice, and training
Our engaging Gun and Knife Crime Workshops help and support parents, teachers, youth workers, police and others to deglamourise the criminal world. We highlight the reasons people carry knives and firearms and the implications of doing so and explore ways of avoiding conflict and making better choices.
Shocking stories and statistics, concerning the death and injury of young people as a result of knife and gun crime, highlight the need for early effective intervention. Our thought-provoking and interactive gun and knife crime workshops aim to tackle this problem at its root, educating those most at risk and helping them to protect themselves from being caught up in crime – either as victim or perpetrator.
1 in 3 young people will grow up without having a mentor
– either through a formal mentoring program or informally through a family friend or community member – leaving them disconnected from a critical resource to help them navigate life.
Endure Mentoring’s peer-led model and person-centered approach; is what makes us authentic –using people who really understand because it’s been part of their life too. It means we have been able to tackle some of the most complex, painful issues affecting our society at present – the surge in weapons crime and the county lines activity that lies behind much of it, the difficulties in our prisons and lack of support for the most vulnerable and the grinding poverty disadvantaged families continue to face. Our 1-2-1 service offers compassion and care because they are offered by someone who has been there themselves.
Community closet provides access to affordable, high-quality clothing for low-income families, ex-offenders, and young people living in disadvantaged communities. We want to empower individuals to feel confident and comfortable in their clothing, while also reducing waste and promoting sustainability.
Our aim is to create a welcoming and inclusive space where individuals can browse through a diverse selection of repurposed and donated clothing items. We want to provide a social shopping experience that not only offers affordable clothing options but also promotes community building and support. Our goal is to help bridge the gap between those who have access to quality clothing and those who do not, creating a more equitable and just society. We also aim to reduce the environmental impact of fast fashion by promoting the reuse of clothing items. Ultimately, we hope to empower individuals and communities to thrive and feel confident in their unique identities.

Individuals can apply for a one off emergency grant which if successful will be provided within 48hours.
"Strong but positive message"
“The program was very informative and delivered a strong but positive message to our students, helping them to understand what is happening around them in the world. The program touched on numerous issues that are affecting the youths of today i.e. the Law and provide them with ways to safeguard against being stereotyped and getting in gangs. Throughout each session you could see the young people searching deep within themselves looking for their true identity and not the one that has been bestowed on them. Many will go on from these lessons that have been taught and will become better people by changing ever so slightly little things in their daily life to go onto greatness."
