Working with local schools and youth groups, the vision of Caleb’s Mountain is about supporting children and young people by improving the environments in which they grow within a Christian context. The three main environments we focus on are the educational facility, the home and the community. Each impacts significantly on the quality of child and young person development.
Linking Lives was set up in June 2016 and is a volunteer led programme aimed at combating loneliness and isolation in our community.
