achieving change through enterprising solutions


Working across Tees Valley, Actes is a charity that embraces a client-led approach to delivering a range of services.

Formed in 2001, Actes has a successful track record of developing and delivering both accredited and non-accredited programmes and training courses using a 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 to all that we work with.

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 and improve lives. We believe there is potential in everyone, and we are committed to helping our clients recognise their own potential, progress towards their goals and make positive changes.

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 Tees Valley and our highly flexible infrastructure allows us to quickly set up at any location.

Our main areas of expertise lie in employability support, training, engagement, and life coaching. We also provide people with opportunities to gain work experience through volunteering in Middlesbrough within our organisation and across our projects.

We are proud to be delivering Climate Action Middlesbrough, Past, Present & Your Future, Your Money and You, Work It Out 2, Herbs for Health and the Actes Work Club.

Since 2001 our award-winning, nationally recognised projects have helped over 25,000 people achieve their goals in the Tees Valley area to improve their quality of life and prospects. In 2023 Actes received an Empowering Futures Award from the AIM Quality Assessment group.
