Mobex Northwest provides training and development programmes utilising the outdoors, arts and environmental education for young people from disadvantaged areas. The project has a strong track record of working with corporate groups, schools, and community and voluntary organisations dealing with people affected by such issues as substance misuse and homelessness.
Mobex Northwest is also a networking project, working with other organisations already engaging with groups of young people. Mobex hopes to support these organisations by providing additional activities and experiences that help workers and young people build constructive relationships.
Individual programmes offer new experiences and opportunities, designed specifically for each individual client group to meet their requirements. The training activities build confidence, awareness and teamwork skills, with the long-term aim of enabling clients to realise their own potential and to become active participants in their own communities.
The project is flexible and mobile, travelling to any venue that best suits the specific client group. Project staff identify the aims and targets for their work in consultation with the groups who are participating in their courses.
Mobex Northwest is a registered access organisation for the Duke of Edinburgh's Award Scheme.
