Extract from the Motiv8 Website

“We recognise that there are many factors which can place young people and their families at increased risk of becoming involved in anti-social behaviour, crime or becoming a victim of crime. We take a person-centred approach, building on strengths and providing positive ‘life chances’ to help them thrive.”

Motiv8 works to support vulnerable young people across Portsmouth, Havant, Fareham, Gosport and the surrounding area by building trusting relationships and boosting their skills and resilience, which in turn inspires and empowers them to reach their potential.

Motiv8 supports young people individually through mentoring, or in groups/workshops, providing assistance in areas such as learning to budget their money; opening a bank account; showing them how to access jobs and training; assisting them to acquire new skills (not only of relevance in the work place but also ‘life skills’), but most importantly they provide a safe and trusting environment for each person to provide positive life changes to give each young person they help a better chance of succeeding.
