impacting the lives of children & young people & the organisations that work with them through care, fostering, training & specialist services
asphaleia, by name, hopes to be a "place of safety" for every child in our care. We believe in the BIG potential of every child and young person - no matter the journey that leads them to our services, they have the right to a positive future. A regional organisation founded in 1999 by David Cottrell, asphaleia works with over 1000 children and young people across London, Kent and Sussex every year.
Young people are at the heart of the organisation - they support our recruitment of new staff, take part in student forums and suggest new ways we can deliver services to them. We provide care, training and fostering services, as well as specialist projects.
