where are you at?







At asphaleia we are BIG believers in the potential of young people. It is the driving force behind all that we do.

Why? Because we think there is nothing better in this world than working with young people! We do this through five ventures who offer a range of services from fostering to leaving care support, education programmes to a project in Africa.

Please click on the buttons below to find out more about each of them.

We have worked hard to develop an interactive and informative website which covers the wide breadth of our organisation - and we can tell you, it was not an easy job! We hope you enjoy the creative fruits of our labour and find it useful, interesting and, in some places, pretty powerful (especially when you meet some of the fantastic young people we work with).

If you don't find what you are looking for, please give us a call and tell us - we'd love to hear from you.

"I have always thought that I could get this far, but I needed some special people in my life that believed it too. Thank you asphaleia."

Asphaleia in Burgess Hill!

Building Heroes is a start-up not-for-profit organisation aiming to train and employ service leavers and young people in sustainable buildings refurbishment and horticulture. 

We are targeting past and present members of all of the three services as well as those furthest from the workplace and those socially excluded.

We’ve just opened a new training centre in Cuckfield near Haywards Heath. Once firmly established Building Heroes will expand geographically into the Midlands and the North of England.

If you’re a service leaver or unemployed young person looking for a job in the sustainable refurbishment industry, please contact us about a place on our next training programme.
