Ascend Needs Help!

ASCEND is a Christian charity based in South Oxhey, a regeneration district with social deprivation issues. AscendThe work is all about moving people forward, challenging their perceived barriers to education and training and providing them with more choice and control over their lives. Thanks to ASCEND, many local people now have the confidence, self-esteem and skills to find a route to employment, some for the first time in their lives.

ASCEND has long had strong personal links with Christ Church and receives support from our Mission Fund.
