How we began

Building Self-Belief CIO was created in April 2018 and formally launched by Sue Snowdon, the Lord Lieutenant of County Durham in November 2018. 

Since that date, we have significantly improved the mental health, self-esteem and life chances of over a thousand vulnerable young people across the North East.
