abandofbrothers (ABOB) works with young men involved in the criminal justice system. We provide them with the support they need to make the transition to an adulthood free of crime, and filled with a sense of belonging, connection and purpose. The young men we meet have often experienced or witnessed domestic violence. They may have been abused or else kept someone else’s abuse a secret. They may have lived in care or experienced neglect. They may have grown up where drug and alcohol abuse is commonplace and where positive adult role models are in short supply. Our work transforms the lives of young men and their communities, whilst saving the state (and ultimately the taxpayer) £40,000 a year for each avoided incarceration. Instead, we create well-rounded men who contribute back to society with healthy aspirations and a renewed sense of wellbeing.

Bird Aid is a rescue and rehabilitation centre specialising in gulls. Having worked with wildlife, specialising in garden birds, our founders recognised the desperate need for specialist facilities for larger birds and, hence, Bird Aid was formed. With gulls now in serious decline, and a real lack of information on how to care for them correctly, we aim to improve gull welfare through improving resources, collaborative efforts with associated organisations, and improving public perception of our beautiful and fascinating sea birds. We encourage volunteers from all sections of the community, but especially young learning disabled adults, who benefit from the therapeutic effects of being outdoors and among animals. In order to provide a variety of different work experience activities we also intend to give sanctuary to other animals and to expand into gardening, woodwork, wildlife conservation and other outdoor activities.
