Our CatZero Journey
We are a unique charity in so many ways – and that is why we transform lives. Here at CatZero our dedicated team works with children, young people and families across the Humber Sub Region, engaging with those living in some of our most deprived communities to truly make a difference to their own lives and lives of those around them.
To us, every person is special, and every challenge faced is an opportunity that is grasped and turned around. ‘Once CatZero: Always CatZero’ is our ethos and we stick true to that. Young or old, our clients are our family and we remain with them through thick and thin! “I have never had a family before. Now I have a family.”
Our programmes not only equip people with the practical skills they need to change their lives, but more importantly, we empower them to overcome personal obstacles that are standing in their way – put simply, we help them to help themselves.
“The guys at CatZero are amazing people, and I can honestly say they all played a part in saving my son’s life. Anyone thinking about a CatZero programme think no more, JUST DO IT,” from the mum of a former participant.

What do our clients think?
“The crew were fantastic and gave lots of time to us all, explaining all of the many questions we all had about sailing and just generally providing a really enjoyable experience on a great yacht. I would definitely recommend this to anyone to try, as this really was a great way to spend a weekend.”
“I can speak for everyone when I say the experience, personally and as a team, was one that we will remember for a very long time. I think sailing is one of those sports that actually compares to running a business and I took a number of things away, as I am certain others did too. A wonderful group of people and a fantastic charity.”
“The staff lead the programme without being judgemental or condescending. They helped the group to help each other at their own pace – this is the reason why we bonded.”
