    6 months ago

    Odd One out have had a great 2023! We have managed to engage young people through talks about careers, identity and resilience. Our focus throughout the year has been especially on Mental Health as we feel that this is still a stigma within various communities.

    Chatterbox does Panto …. Oh no they don’t …

    by Samantha Turner, 7 months ago

    We chose the Windsor Pantomime to be our last ‘social’ of the year. The boys were treated to seats right near the front, so were involved in all the fun right from the start (including getting very wet after the water spraying during ‘the 12 days of Christmas) 💦


    We had ice-cream in the interval and even got a wave from Basil Brush himself 🦊❤️👍

    by Odd One Out, 11 months ago

    Odd One Out has supported young lads and in a short space of time there has been a huge interest in the project. The innovation funding has presented us with the opportunity to build on our aims and we have partnered up with Behind The White Lines which support young footballers integrate back into society after they are released from the academies. We have also participated in a football tournament to support raise awareness about mental health and met professional footballers such as Danny Rose and Yannick Bolasie!
