Kick Start Enterprise
We are an award winning social enterprise from Bristol and we have one simple aim: to provide support working with a wide range of children and young people, and their families.
We work closely with schools providing training, coaching and consultancy, including capacity building for leaders and helping to raise the attainment levels of vulnerable groups. We also offer a range of programmes for young people, including our award-winning Heroes Programme, which helps young people to recognise their goals and fulfil their potential, and tailored careers and education advice for students across the city of Bristol and surrounding areas.

Heroes has made me think that school is worth it. I’ve got to make school count!Mary Jane
Over the past few years, we have worked closely with Kickstart who have given the school fantastic support in ensuring that the provision that we have in place for children with English as an Additional Langauge is having a positive impact. We have always found Dot and the team to be extremely professional, supportive and extremely good value for money.Gareth Griffiths
