About Kibble

As a specialist child and youth care charity and social enterprise, we empower young people through care, education and support. Many of the young people we care for have experienced significant trauma in their lives. We give them consistent love and care, an inspiring education, and the therapeutic supports to help them achieve their best. By providing a safe, stable environment that is both nurturing and therapeutic, alongside a robust support network, we provide young people with opportunities and encourage them to believe in themselves, feel a sense of belonging, and realise their own self-worth.
