And every year
the good work goes on
Brathay has been operating as a youth charity since 1946. Set up by businessman and philanthropist, Francis Scott, the Trust was established at Brathay Hall to support the training of young employees and their employers visiting from the cities and towns, and to provide research into their development and education, as well as other related charitable purposes.
Arguably, not much has changed – at least not in the spirit and essence of what we do – but it is our unique and evolving approach to learning that has become our greatest legacy.
- A unique blend of impactful residentials with timely and well-planned interventions in communities and within people’s homes.
- The chance to learn through experience by doing and sharing.
- A community presence working with partners and outside agencies to deliver programmes that are dynamic and fit for purpose.
- A practice-based evidence approach to evaluation to accurately monitor our impact and inform good practice and programme development.
From small steps to giant leaps, we see young people on our charitable programmes begin to re-engage, be it at home, at school, or in their local community. As their wellbeing improves so does their commitment to learning new skills as they prepare to start work or training.Godfrey Owen, Brathay's Chief Executive
We build meaningful relationships with young people built on respect, care, and unconditional positive regard.Rachel Head, Leader of Children & Young People’s Services
