We’re celebrating and invite you to join us

This year Motiv8 is proud to be celebrating its 21st Birthday, that’s over 20 years of Motiv8 delivering Life Chances for Young People and their Families.  We’ve seen a lot of changes locally and globally during this time, and shared journeys with thousands of young people who have demonstrated amazing resilience, determination and character to achieve their full potential. 

For two decades the staff and volunteers have been working hard to create trusted and long term relationships that achieve real change at crucial times in their lives. Motiv8 offers a range of community based support services for 7 – 25 year olds, including one to one mentoring, educational and confidence building group work and drop in youth club activities.

Lou’s Story

“I was referred to Motiv8 as a young person at risk of offending, I learned so much in my time with Motiv8. I finally had someone who I believed 100% understood me and saw that I was a good person I just needed a little belief and guidance, at the age of 25 I still refer back to what they have taught me. I have been working within the security industry for years now. For me this is one of the best out there for young people and it doesn’t get the publicity and recognition it deserves.”

Lou’s story is one of thousands of successful stories from young people and families. Together, we stabilise their lives, raise aspirations, develop resilience and guide them further with, life-chances like skills for work, enabling them to live, learn and earn. 

The need for Motiv8’s services is greater than any time in our history. We are committed to maintaining a sustainable, accessible presence in the communities we serve across Portsmouth and Hampshire, but we need your help.

  1. Donate to Motiv8 to help us support local young people
  2. Regular monthly giving to help us support more young people like Connor, it costs us £240 per month to provide targeted support to one young person (8 people giving £30 per month makes this possible).
  3. Stay in touch through giving us consent to keep you updated with our e-newsletter.

Thank you for all your support, it really does make a difference to young people and families across our region.

Yours sincerely

Clare Ansell 

Chief Executive
