Switch Up uses tried and tested mentoring techniques along with physical training to engage Nottingham's young people in positive activity and to steer them away from the circle of crime and gang-criminality.
We deliver outreach service, mentoring, peer mentoring, accredited non-formal education, and through-the-gate resettlement mentoring for young people serving custodial sentences.
Through our programmes we help young people to reflect on their lives and to express positive targets for the future.
The Switch Up programmes have been instrumental in helping young offenders break the cycle of crime in their lives and realise their true potential”
Who are we?
Switch Up exists to empower Nottingham's young people, children and young adults to break the cycle of offending and reoffending.
Through engaging young people in positive activities, sports, mentoring and peer mentoring, we equip them with the skills, character and confidence they need to realise their full potential.
