Take the tour
LCET is a charity set up in 1993 by a group of individuals and churches. Our aim is to make a difference in the lives of young people, now and in their future. We work alongside the local church, mainly in secondary schools with young people from all backgrounds.
Our Re-engagement team provide social & emotional support for young people who are in care, who self harm, have ADHD & those who struggle with anger, self worth or image. We innovate cutting edge programmes of support for those disengaged with their education.
Our Chaplaincy team provides inspiration and challenge for the spiritual side of life. We help schools enhance spiritual development through assemblies, RE lessons and creative projects. We want to give the opportunity to explore the deepest questions of life.
We're based in Luton town centre where we run a cafe and arts centre for young people. Young people can drop in to have fun, meet friends or take part in one of our drama or arts projects. There's also a programme of outdoor activities, camps and events.
LCET is overseen by a Board of Trustees with expertise in relevant areas, and who represent our stakeholders. We have 14 staff and over twenty volunteers working with thousands of young people every year and we want to be a positive influence for every one of them!
We support young people who self harm to explore the issue and find alternative ways of coping.

is passionate about making a real difference in Luton. After all, what could be more important than being there for young people at the right moment. We're determined to move mountains to serve and support the teenagers we work with, and go the extra mile to see them reach their potential. We believe they deserve the best we can offer. It's an exciting journey and, on the way, we find ourselves inspired and challenged by the young people we meet.
