Here's what just some people have to say at the end or their programme:

“It has been amazing and such an experience I feel a better person in myself and more confident about trying new stuff”


“When I came on the boat things were not good at home but now thanks to your help me and my family have become so close, I am now at college doing BTEC business and getting A* which means next year I can do my A-levels. I would just like to thank you for giving me that experience because it has helped me a lot in the past year.” (Jess, CatZero graduate)

"CatZero hasn't just changed his life; it's changed our lives and his son's life. He left here a boy and he came back a man. He totally changed and he's stayed that way.” (Angie, mother of CatZero graduate Vinny, speaking to BBC Radio4)

"I really can't believe it has been so long since I did cat zero. One of the first groups to do it, it changed my life and made me realise who I wanted to be, cheers fellas." Young Person via Facebook
