Catch22 – Is a social business, a not for profit business with a social mission. For over 200 years we have designed and delivered services that build resilience and aspiration in people and communities.

Our services also prevent or stop child exploitation, raise awareness amongst young people and provide training for professionals, parents and carers.

People engage best with a service that operates flexibly, so we offer a responsive and needs-led service, focusing not on the behaviour but its cause.
