ABOUT

​MISSION AND HISTORY
OUR TEAM

Pure Insight was established as a small local charity in January 2013 as a direct response to issues highlighted by local young people leaving care.  Pure Insight was founded with and by people with lived and professional experience of care, committed to challenging the issues faced many care leavers.  Care Leavers directly input to all our plans, which are further informed by local and national research/policies.

 

Our small, dedicated staff team give huge flexibility and commitment to enable care leavers to flourish.  They work alongside young people to shape projects and are activity involved in developing the future direction of the charity.  In addition to the team we draw on the skills and experience of over 100 dedicated volunteers who receive intensive training and supervision, enabling them to mentor Care Leavers for minimum periods of 2 years with many evolving into a long term friendship. 

 

The hours we all work are varied and responsive to service needs so do include evenings and weekends, as we believe young people should have access to timely support. Care leavers tell us this is what they value most, and what makes us different to other services. We operate like a large family, so it is vital to us that people fit with the culture of our organisation.  We help each other and do what is necessary to ensure everyone in the team, volunteer group and most importantly young people feel supported and valued.  

 

Our projects provide opportunities for young people to stabilise, prevent crisis and progress to a life that isn’t just about surviving. We help young people to thrive through a mixture of genuine love and care in addition to practical help and support.
