Bedazzle is a Youth Development Charity, that offers support to schools, families and youth organisations in supporting their young people to fulfil their amazing potential. We offer training and accreditation for staff and students in lifeskills, wellbeing and Mental Health and pride ourselves on offering completely bespoke services to each organisation, based on the specific needs of your young people.

As an advocate of the arts we also encourage and actively support participation in the arts as a tool for wellbeing and in terms of the transferable life skills it can offer to those that engage with their creativity.

Similarly, we also aim to educate young people about the relationship between their physical & mental health, again encouraging and promoting participation in physical activity as a vital tool for maintaining and improving state of mind.

Our vision is that every young person feels the capacity to BEDAZZLE. Our founders, lifelong professionals working with young people in public health, education, and care, have seen this belief in oneself slipping incrementally from our young people over the past decade. 

Never before have young people had more dimensions to interfere with their development – globalisation and the climate crisis, social media, high rates of crime, and poverty and inequality. In fact, the West Midlands, where we are based and operate, have some of the worst pockets of deprivation in the UK, including Birmingham, which has the 6th highest deprivation in the country. Yet statutory services have been cut annually in recent years, leaving gaping holes in support for children and young people, even while demand is rising for services.
