Mixed Foundations (MF) is a peer led, non profit organisation that offers innovative specilist interventions including therapeutic counselling, mentoring, motivational and education sessions.
The young people who work with MF often report that they are willing to engage, because they get a sense that the workers actually care and understand the place where they are coming from.
MF manages to successfully engage

Staff are aware and understand the real issues of the inner city, and are able to communicate with young people on their level with empathetic understanding and address the socio cultural problem of miss match of worker to young person.
