The NOBLe Project will enable young migrants to build confidence, learn new skills and develop pathways to education, skills, healthier lifestyles and better lives through the following activities :-

    g programmes [dietary advice, workshops and courses]
  1. Exercise and fitness programmes [sports and physical activity]
  2. Addressing anti-social behaviour [sexual health, substance misuse etc.]
  3. Education – providing link-work with schools, parents and young people to support their education e.g. homework support, mentoring etc.
  4. Volunteering – the project will engage young people as mentors, buddying them with peers to offer support, befriending and life coaching
