About  Us

Long story short


BEEP is a charity set up to continue the vital work and repeat the spectacular success of the Rugby Empowering Employment Programme (REEP). REEP changed the life chances of 93% of participants, who were disengaged and disenfranchised from the workplace, for the better. REEP was made possible through funding from the 2015 Rugby World Cup Legacy and donations and support from generous local partners. The Rugby World Cup is now over but the demand continues.  We remember that “Every Individual Matters” to our economy, communities and the lives of the young people we help.
  • To help young people identify, understand and achieve their potential
  • To build their confidence, self esteem and resilience
  • To help them to identify and set achievable personal goals
  • To engage with employers who can offer real job opportunities
  • To build positive and meaningful relationships with our volunteer mentors

What to expect

How sessions help

‘This is the first time I have been on a course that has been all about me, the coaches really helped me to find out what is was that I wanted to do and I now feel confident enough to go for an interview’


Our Trustees

Our Team

We are delighted to have the support of a fantastic team of trustees, helping to make sure BEEP continues to run great programmes and ongoing volunteer mentoring support, to provide young people with the very best opportunities to move forward positively with their lives.

Our diverse team of Ambassadors promote BEEP. Venues and facilities are always essential to the programme and the use of these are regularly donated by businesses and other organisations.

We cannot do this without YOUR support. BEEP does not receive any government funding and all our programmes rely on donations and fundraising.

All of the Trustees would like to THANK everyone who engages with our charity, all support is massively appreciated.

Oenone Thomas

“I was profoundly moved to see the difference REEP made to the lives and life chances of the young people involved in the first REEP group. These young people had grown in confidence, seen a door begin to open and begun to plan ahead. Since then I have witnessed their progress, seen the importance of their committed mentors and watched as their lives have changed. I feel privileged to be a BEEP trustee.

“I became a trustee of BEEP after seeing the real difference the programmes make to the life chances of individuals. My organisation has employed a young person who was struggling with life and finding it very difficult to gain employment. The programme provided him with the skills and tools needed to move his life forward positively”

Alice Daniels 

“I became a trustee of BEEP to work with a charity in the local area that could make a real difference. BEEP provides successful and worthwhile programmes for 16 to 24 year olds in the local area who may not have the confidence or skills necessary to enter long term employment – things that many of us take for granted. The BEEP programme, with the support of local businesses, provides individuals with those skills and the ongoing support for their future, it is fantastic what a change can be seen in a period of just two weeks and in the long term with the support of the mentors”.
