Who we are
GO! became a registered charity in November 2014 and was formed by a group of like minded people who wanted to create opportunities for others, regardless of their background, to increase confidence and wellbeing.
Great Opportunities has built a reputation for its innovation in service development and achieved recognition for the imaginative and diverse ways it creates opportunities for young people including horseriding, archery, birds of prey, sno-tubing to music scholarships and work placements.
Since GO! started its operations the Charity has had over 1300 young people attend clubs and events, 1100 families getting involved, provided over 3500 hours of clubs and events, 1000 hours of mentoring.
GO! started as a result of funding cuts to short breaks with just 1 club, over the years it has grown year on year reaching more and more families and young people creating fantastic opportunities across the South of England.
Over this last year we were delighted to win the Epic Awards 2016 and to be shortlisted as best new charity by the Charity Times Awards for three years running. This has been a testament to the hard work and commitment of the Charity’s voluntary team and those who support it.
The Charity is now looking to increase its services and projects across the South of England to ensure that we can carry on creating more opportunities in music, theatre, art, work and technology.
To create great opportunities through participation in education, social activities and the arts for all, regardless of background and ability, to develop life skills, increase confidence, independence and wellbeing.
