We also work with youngsters who may not be doing very well at school, either due to problems at home or because of mild learning difficulties like dyslexia.

Activities at the Archway Project centre on off road motorbike mechanics and riding. Young people learn the theory in the classroom which supports the practical mechanics they are taught in the workshop. Our members carry out simple repairs through to complete engine rebuilds, and maintain our fleet of motorbikes that are used during off road riding trips.

We also teach cooking and photography, and arrange trips to motorsport events such as the Weston Beach Race and British Motocross Grand Prix, so that our members can watch their sporting heroes in action. Through all of these activities, we equip young people with both qualifications and life skills to help them lead meaningful futures.

We're currently hoping to raise £10,000 towards a camping and off-road motorbike riding residential trip for our young members. To find out more visit http://www.justgiving.com/Archway-Project-Residential-Appeal-2010/

The Fostering Network

The Fostering Network is the leading UK charity for everyone involved in foster care. On any one day over 51,000 children in the UK are looked after by foster carers as they are unable to stay with their own parents. Many have been abused or neglected. They may have a disability which their parents struggle to cope with or their family may be under severe strain. Foster care provides these vulnerable children with the support and stability they need, helping to ensure that their traumatic start in life does not lead to problems in adulthood.

We provide training, advice, information and support, and make sure the views of children and young people are heard and respected throughout the care system. We are instrumental in recruiting foster carers, and helping to tackle the deficit of around 10,000 foster carers still needed to look after vulnerable children. Our media campaigns have reached audiences of 30 million, raising public awareness and ensuring action at the highest levels.

Young carers are children aged 5 to 18 who have caring responsibilities in their home.

- Mary, 10 years old, cares for her mum who has physical disabilities and has just learnt she has womb cancer.

Lumos

Lumos is a charity which is working to transform the lives of disadvantaged children by facilitating the end of institutional care for good. It does this in two ways:

at a policy level to accelerate and improve the quality of reform in health, education and social protection services

at a practical level working directly with children, their families and their carers to facilitate their re-integration and to ensure their concerns are heard and addressed by policy makers

There are currently over 1 million children living in large residential institutions across Europe. Most of these children are not orphans but from ethnic minorities, poor backgrounds or are disabled. Published research proves that institutionalisation damages children's health and development, and reduces their life chances. With experts in child protection, public health and social inclusion, and whose advice is sought by other concerned organisations, Lumos is able to effect real and lasting change.

Oxfordshire Family Mediation

Oxfordshire Family Mediation (OFM) works with separated families to promote the mental & physical welfare of children. Our projects aim to facilitate parents & others to consider children?s needs first & to enable their voices to be heard. We?re committed to meeting the needs of these children in a variety of ways. Over 35% of children are affected by family breakdown by the age of 16. The adversarial system often escalates conflict between parents, which can be damaging for children. Parenting is never an easy task: it?s even more complicated & delicate when you don?t live with the other parent & emotions are raw.

Mediation works to enable families to manage these difficult situations in the most helpful way for all. It helps parents keep the conversations on track, slowing it down to make sure they have all the information they need, have heard how each other see the issues, & weigh the pros and cons of different options. By protecting parents from pressure/judgement we successfully provide space for them to find solutions in a creative way.

Around 19,000 children have benefited directly from our Mediation Service & Children?s Service, with many children benefiting directly or indirectly from our Schools Training Programme, our Walking on Eggshells Project for school students & our Parenting Apart Workshops.

OFM is a professional service: all mediators are highly experienced, qualified, trained & accredited by the Legal Services Commission.
