Riddlesdown was fortunate enough to be introduced to Frederick from Mighty Men of Valour via Early Help a number of years ago.
After seeing the wonderful work that he did with some of our students Riddlesdown were keen to have him supporting more students on a regular basis. Frederick has supported students with challenging behaviour and has mentored them in a way that makes them feel valued and aspirational.
We try to run a 6 week programme for Frederick to work with our boys, however, so many of them at the end of the course have built up such a strong and positive bond that they always ask if he can be a regular feature of their school experience.
Frederick has played a significant role in improving the life changes of some of our harder to engage young people and we are very gratefully for this.
Frederick has a calm and approachable manner, where nothing is too much for him.
