That’s the belief of Start Again founder Mark Peters, who has been working with young people in Birmingham and the West Midlands since 2007.
“Start Again aims to help young people to achieve their goals, to set their own benchmark and achieve what they want to in life,” explains Mark.
Start Again works with young people through conversations, music, one to one sessions and Mark’s particular favourite, football. “Football is a great way of getting young people together,” he enthuses. “Even if you don’t speak their language, it is a really useful tool to break down barriers and build confidence.”
