achieving change through enterprising solutions


Working across the North-East of England and beyond, Actes is a charity that embraces a client-led approach to delivering a wide portfolio 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 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 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 employment 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 New Directions, Work IT Out, Climate Action Middlesbrough, Green Shoots, Benefit Take Up, Past, Present and Your Future, and Firm Foundations.

Since 2001 our award winning, nationally recognised projects have helped over 20,000 people achieve their goals in the Tees Valley area to improve their quality of life and future prospects.
