About Barefoot‎ > ‎

What We Do


In the 20 years of Barefoot we have aimed to:


Make things happen

We talk to people and find out where needs exist, then introduce and manage activities that make a difference. After 12 years of work with schools and communities that concentrated on the arts, our main focus in recent years has been on youth work.


Build confidence and skills

Our activities are designed to give people confidence in their own abilities and new skills that can enhance their lives.


Bring people together

Our work is all about bringing people together to share positive experiences. We aim to break down barriers and help people discover a sense of community and belonging. Our current work in Ernesettle is very much about linking young people to their community and vice versa.


Work in partnership

We always work in partnership, with the ethos that all partners should benefit from their involvement.
