SAFE Steps

A mentoring service for children aged 10-14, at risk of disruption in education commissioned by Lambeth SAFE Taskforce. MLCE, Juvenis and Your Story will work with schools, Lambeth SAFE Taskforce and other stakeholders to support young people at risk of involvement in violence to re-engage with education and have better outcomes in life. This is in line with the Lambeth Made Safe Strategy’s vision to ‘make Lambeth one of the safest places in London for children, teenagers and young adults’.

SAFE stands for Support, Attend, Fulfil, Exceed. Lambeth SAFE Taskforce brings together schools, the Local Authority, and partners to commission evidence-informed interventions to Support young people with challenging behaviour, enabling them to Attend school regularly so they can Fulfil their potential and prevent costly poor life outcomes by inspiring them to Exceed their expectation.

The aim of the service is to offer a mentoring service for those children and young people at risk of disrupted education to:

  • Reduce involvement in serious violence
  • Improve social emotional regulation and well-being
  • Improve attendance
  • Improve behaviour in school and the local area
  • Reduce exclusions

Being part of the journey for these young people is an honour for us at T.M. LEWIN.

Every member of T.M. LEWIN that has been present at the fitting of one of these young people have said what a pleasure it is to see the self-confidence beam from that person when they see themselves in the mirror looking and ready to take their next step.

It is an absolute honour to support Juvenis’ Lucky Stars programme.

“Every day, we dress everyone from CEO’s to sports stars to celebrities – but watching a young man put on his first suit and smile at himself in the mirror with a new-found confidence is not only humbling, but a reminder of how privileged we are to contribute to their journey.”

Thank you for providing this timeless moment.

“Please know that in selecting a retailer such as T.M. Lewin it helps to raise aspirations and self-worth to young people who judge themselves as undeserving. I can tell you that when my young person put on the suit jacket his posture changed; his shoulders when back and his head was held high. When he looked in the mirror at himself you could see the future possibilities and visions of success going through his mind. Thank you for providing this timeless moment.”
