Who We Are
Lite-Waves Therapeutic Education is an outreach organisation that provides social & emotional support services. Set up to meet the growing needs faced by young people and their families, living in inner city urban locations. We work with all ethnicities, however, our projects target communities perceived to be culturally, economically or geographically disadvantaged. We see our organisation as part of the solution of ‘breaking the cycle of abuse and failure to thrive in these communities.
We do this by providing practical, educational, emotional and mental health support. We specialise in working with people of African and Caribbean descent and work with school aged young people in all sectors. Our programmes are both preventative and corrective, devised to ‘raise aspirations’ and ‘change behaviour’. Our Re-Connect Programme has a focus on improving resilience and fostering emotional literacy.
