Our Mission:

Our mission statement is to “Challenge young people to be leaders of their own lives.”

We seek to engage young people through a range of options including:

  • Mentoring programmes (group & individual)
  • Leadership development programmes
  • Sports and healthy activities
  • Performing arts groups
  • Life skills and employability workshops
  • Schools work
  • Residential youth camps
  • Summer schemes

Our core beliefs:

Reaching Higher operates under a Christian ethos seeking to provide services to engage young people (regardless of faith) in accordance with the values and principles of the Christian faith. We work with young people regardless of their faith perspective, never condemning, rather always encouraging them to reach higher.

Our Values:


We pursue a culture of excellence where the Reaching Higher standard is over and above other organisations in our peer group and where we ensure our planning, execution and evaluation is to the highest standard. To Reaching Higher - being a charity doesn’t mean we do things to a mediocre standard.


We are an organisation of integrity where the trust of the community is critical to our success. We understand that trust is not just about the public and RH – it’s crucial to team work and to us learning to maximise our effectiveness as a team.


We will always look to simplify everything we offer. Keeping it simple starts in the back office but it flows right through the way we work. We standardise our working models to ensure that we don’t duplicate, complicate or confuse.
