Catch22 is a social business which works at every stage of the social welfare cycle to support people from cradle to career.

Catch22 does this by delivering children’s social care, alternative education, apprenticeships and employability programmes, justice and rehabilitation services, gangs intervention work, emotional wellbeing and substance misuse programmes.

Catch22’s vision is a strong society where everyone has a good place to live, a purpose and good people around them. Our services across Merseyside work with young people and families to help them reach their full potential.

Currently we deliver the National Citizen Service (NCS); Missing from home and care and child sexual and criminal exploitation services across Merseyside.

Our MFH & CE services undertake return interviews for all young people reported as being missing from home or care. We support young people involved in chid sexual or criminal exploitation providing them with on-going support to aid their recovery and help turn their lives around on a short and long term basis.

The service offers group work to groups of young people (preventative and targeted) and outreach sessions across Merseyside and also delivers training to professionals to raise their awareness of child exploitation.
