PCAP delivers projects as well as coaching and mentoring sessions that enable beneficiaries to use education as a tool for personal and collective improvement.


We are delighted to be delivering Be Educated and Fit for Life (BEFit4Life), a 3-year project we launched in January 2020, aimed at providing career and personal development to 150 young people aged 16-21 who are not in education, employment or training (NEET), or who are at risk of becoming NEET and getting involved in crime in Lambeth, Wandsworth and Southwark.

This project is supported by the Young Londoners’ Fund.
Nick Lancaster, BEFit4Life’s Outreach Coordinator, talks about his experience.
