A4S is run by ProgressAbility.org which is a charitable company limited by guarantee based in Bedford. We are currently a team of twenty five + people who are passionate and committed to helping young people succeed in life. We have members of staff, advisors and volunteers who have a wide range of experience, skills and qualifications in teaching, coaching and other areas. We also have five trustees and six advisors with relevant professional expertise and experience in running charities and businesses.
A4S offers a wide range of term-time and holiday activities for young people in Bedfordshire, Northamptonshire and the surrounding counties. Our aim is to promote a sense of well-being and purpose in young people so that they feel better equipped to progress, move on and lead fulfilling lives; a stepping stone to a brighter future.
We achieve this by providing experiential learning activities that engage and inspire young people to build up their self-esteem, confidence, skills and qualifications to make progress in education, training or employment.
Our Trustees -
The trustees are passionate about the work of A4S in helping to change the lives of disadvantaged young people. They are accountable for delivering safe and high quality activities to the young people in line with the objectives of the charity and for the welfare and development of all staff and volunteers working for it. They meet regularly as trustees and work closely with A4S staff - to provide clear direction and sound governance of A4S as a sustainable service for the local community. As individuals, the trustees have all been involved in working directly with young people and bring a wealth of experience from the education, health and financial sectors and of running successful local businesses.
