Jonah's Project is a community interest company that provides services to young people aged 11-25 years, who are convicted, involved or at risk of criminal activity.
Our tagline is a "safe place for positive reflection". Although we are not a religious company or affiliated to any religion, the core ethos and morals of our company are based around the Bible story of Jonah and the Whale.
The basis of the story is that God called on Jonah to deliver his word to the people and Jonah refused, Turned his back, making the wrong choice. This led him to face God and be swallowed by a Whale. Jonah reflected on the choices he had made and chose to make right his wrongs and go forth on the right path.
So, using this story, we aim to be the place the young people we work with can reflect on their choices, turning their negative situation, issue or experience into a positive life lesson..... SO effectively, we become the Whale!!!
We pride ourselves in working in a reflective manner using an inside out approach. This means that we work with the young people to address their invisible inside issues. Providing them with relevant support and empowerment to enable them to make a positive change outwardly towards the right path, for them to be the best version of themselves. Whether that be training, employment or enterprise.
The core staff team are made up of qualified youth workers who have gained experience through working in many different settings such as youth centres, alternative provisions, pupil referral units and residential homes. These experiences have been crucial to the building and future planning of Jonah's Project.
We are invested in supporting young people and assisting them in becoming the best version of themselves. We do this by making sure that we engage and build positive relationships with the young people by getting to know each one of them personally. As well as this, we also keep our knowledge base up to date to enable us to offer the best service, non-judgemental support and advice and guidance for our young people to be the best. We believe that this is something we must provide to at our best!
