Evolve & Adapt is an organisation that was established with the aim of meeting the forever growing complex needs of young people across our schools and wider community. Research would suggest that more young people than ever before are demonstrating challenging behaviour in school, have unmet SEN needs, have experienced adverse childhood experiences, live in areas of social deprivation, are involved in criminal/gang activity and are at risk of exploitation linked to CSE, radicalisation and drug/alcohol misuse. As a result, the rate of fixed term exclusions and permanent exclusions have increased nationwide, school attendance has decreased and with the recent exam reforms and reduction in vocational courses offered, more young people than ever before are disengaged with their learning and becoming NEET post 16.  Further to this the rate of youth crime is increasing and many communities lack the facilities and resources needed to foster strong community links and support their most vulnerable.

Evolve & Adapt deliver a portfolio of mentoring services to Schools, Local Authorities, Youth Offending Services, Social Services, Youth Groups and a range of other community projects. We have successfully worked with a wide variety of students across inner and outer London Boroughs with schools reporting a reduction in exclusions, social care reporting improved engagement, youth offending reporting a reduction in re-offending rates and SEN reporting a faster successful re-integration rate for some of their most complex students into appropriate educational placements.
