Formed in 2001, Actes has a successful track record of developing and delivering both accredited and non-accredited programmes using a unique peer-led approach. We work with a variety of partners, including other charities, local authorities, education providers and statutory services, to support our delivery and ensure a tailored approach for all of our clients.

Here at Actes, our expertise lies in firstly identifying the needs of the individual, then by providing genuine engagement and support we develop innovative solutions to achieve change. We believe there is potential in everyone and we are committed to helping our clients recognise their own potential, progress towards their goals to help them improve their lives.

Actes looks for enterprising solutions to problems and we are not afraid to try something different. We have a well qualified, dedicated and experienced team who are supported by efficient and experienced back office staff. We currently operate across the North-East and beyond and our highly flexible infrastructure allows us to quickly set up at any location, anywhere in the country.
