We are The James Brindley Foundation. Formed in 2018 following the murder of James Brindley, we are a team of family members and professionals, united by a shared passion to support young people to make positive choices in life. The James Brindley Foundation provides an opportunity for young people to understand how the choices that they make can affect both themselves and others, now and in the future. We believe that young people, including those at risk of entering the Criminal Justice System can achieve their full potential and live a crime free lifestyle with the right support and intervention.
Our charity seeks to provide vulnerable young people at risk of offending with safe and supportive environments, where they can be offered the tools and guidance that challenge their behaviour, and build their knowledge surrounding youth violence and its consequences. We pride ourselves on our ability to tackle youth offending straight on, focusing on key educational areas that can lead to offending behaviour. Through the delivery of The James Brindley Full Circle Programme in schools, residential care homes and other provisions, we seek to empower young people, build resilience and end violent youth offending.
