Our programmes

We currently deliver programmes across the North West and North Wales.

The young people on our programmes refer to themselves as ‘gappies’.

We Belong


All gappies stay part of the WeMindTheGap family. We offer lifelong support and a safe and trusted person to talk to – whether that’s help with careers, housing, money, wellbeing or relationships.

Hear from our gappies...

Chloe felt unable to leave the house and was on a rollercoaster of emotions.

She says completing our programme was life changing, for both her and her daughter.

Today she works for social services and is studying Adult Nursing at university.

Before joining our programme, Shahida struggled with her mental health and feeling isolated.

“WeMindTheGap has given me so many opportunities that I would never have dreamed possible, including winning a six-month place on Raleigh International. Next month I am off to work in Nepal – I can’t wait to tell you how I get on!”

70% of our graduates have remained in successful and sustainable employment, or educational opportunities which means that they have stayed clear of the benefits system.For comparison, on joining the programme, 100% of gappies were on income related benefits.
