Fresh Visions was founded in 2001 by a group of frontline housing workers in London. 

Day after day they were coming into contact with vulnerable young people on local estates who were asking for their help. Many were lonely, isolated and suffering in silence, living in chaotic households and frequently victims or witnesses of domestic abuse. With an absence of local services, they often had nowhere else to turn to.

Fresh Visions was set up to fill this gap in local support. Over the last 21 years the charity has helped transform the lives of hundreds of young people every year.

The need for Fresh Visions today

It's currently estimated that 4.5 million children and young people live in poverty in the UK. According to recent research approximately 760,000 young adults aged 16-24 are not in education, employment or training (NEET).
