Do you know or work with a young person who lives in one of our locations that would benefit from our involvement?

Then let us know. We’d love to help.

Many of the young people who are referred to us are given weekly one-to-one mentoring support to increase their resilience and support them to reach their fullest potential.

If you would like to refer a young person, then please get in touch by calling 01865 788350 or emailing

What others are saying about Thrive

“I have known Thrive and the work it does for and with disadvantaged young people in Barton and Blackbird Leys for many years. Its enthusiastic young team, allied to its sound governance and long term approach, have made a significant difference to the lives of many whose prospects and opportunities would otherwise have been very poor. It is excellent that their model and work have now been extended into Abingdon. It is an organisation that richly deserves philanthropic support to both continue and expand its work.”

Tim Stevenson OBE, Lord Lieutenant of Oxfordshire
