Working Towards a Better Tomorrow
A WORD FROM OUR MANAGING DIRECTOR & FOUNDER
The Write Time started from the desire to inspire and support the hardest to reach members of the community. Established in 2014, we are an organisation motivated by the goal of helping individuals thrive in their challenging environment, by giving them a strong foundation of support, education, and advice.
We offer a variety of government and lottery funded programmes to provide in-school mentoring programmes, traineeships, women’s projects and a small independent school. We are always looking at ways to work in partnership with other organisations to broaden the scope of the services we can offer.
CEO & FOUNDER

Chris’ passion and drive is to successfully work with young people that are marginalised by society and promote social inclusion. He specialises in “turning around” those hardest to reach and will work alongside their families and other providers to get the best possible outcomes.
His own personal story is one of triumph over adversity.
