hey yung soulja, hey yung sista

together we will find a way

with great love & respect to john kongos for writing the original

& the incomparable happy mondays for immortalising such a great song in 1990;

we wrote, played, sampled, sung, produced, filmed, edited, published & promoted our own remixed version, with a video that tells an all too familiar story...

n:gage life | step on 30 (hey yung soulja, hey yung sista}

n:gage life skills

together we will find a way

talking, listening, cooking, cleaning, working, earning, saving, giving, sharing, caring, shopping, fixing stuff... n:gaging life

we are trained and experienced in supporting learners with a variety of communication challenges such as adhd, asperger's, autistic spectrum condition, oppositional defiant disorder, and, well, cba...

 

n:gage life for free

together we will find a way

free? yeah, yeah... what's the catch?

there isn't one

we raise money through fundraising & partnerships, this pays our staff a wage of £30,000 a year & their continual professional development and our day to day expenses

volunteers can also do a fantastic job too, but in our experience the reality of volunteering hits home pretty soon, there's no money to pay them, and they become, through no fault of their own, yet another adult who has let a young person down...

the volunteer doesn't feel too great either


we don't commit to anything we cannot do , but we do everything we commit to

we have longer term services you can buy, we hope you do,

but our n:gagement plan is free & always will be

and that's it

 

n:gage education

together we will find a way

this is not just a flashy website to hook you in,

only to put a pen, pencil and a calculator in your hand to do a load of boring worksheets


we can and will help with numeracy and  literacy but only if the young person asks us to


we are trained and experienced in supporting learners with a variety of learning challenges

such as dyslexia, dyscalculia
