...for young people in London dealing with the effects of violent crime.
WHAT WE DO
Mango Tree House is a community assignment to help young people affected by the knife crime epidemic, especially those bereaved by violence. Our founder, Charlene Grant, with the help of dedicated volunteers and partners, aim to improve the wellness and mental health of young people, empowering them to take charge of their lives and develop positive beliefs, values, and attitudes.
We seek friendships and partnerships to work with us to bring about positive change.
HOW WE HELP
FIGHTING KNIFE CRIME
YOUTH MENTAL HEALTH
"Enough is enough!"
Mango Tree House was founded following the death of Julien Warrington who was stabbed in his home by a group of teenagers. We are coming together with other organisations in this quest to end knife crime. We are fighting to change the mindsets of at-risk youth.
"Be somebody for somebody"
We want to provide all young people with a dedicated mentor to meet with regularly. We will ensure that all our mentors are trauma-informed and have Youth Mental Health First Aid training.
Get in touch to find out how you can help.
"It's good to talk!"
One of our goals is to ensure that all vulnerable and at-risk youth and their families in London have access to mental health care, are well informed about mental wellness and know who to talk to when they need help.
“It's not easy, talking about bereavement. I felt so alone at times because I didn't want to burden anyone or bring the mood down with my grief. I was a prisoner of my own mind until I spoke to people who just 'got it'. I felt free.
I want every young person to have access to an ear who understands."
