Our mission is simple

Enabling young people to reach their full potential

About N-Gage

N-Gage is a Manchester-based charity that gives young people at risk of educational or social exclusion opportunities and skills to achieve their full potential. 

Working in partnership with schools, Greater Manchester Police, Manchester City Council, and other partners we provide highly successful, flexible, and targeted approaches to anti-social behaviour and educational exclusion. 

N-Gage was founded by Christie Spurling MBE, FRSA in 2006 in response to his own experiences of educational exclusion. 

He is a believer in being part of the solution and all the programmes he has set up for N-Gage try to look at young people as a whole person. 

If young people are causing problems in school, it is likely that they may also be creating challenges outside of school.

He is committed to encouraging all young people to be an active and positive part of their community, in school and out. 

N-Gage has a growing team of passionate staff and volunteers who combine creative skills and a commitment to young people with a range of projects and programmes across Greater Manchester.

What we do

How we help

We empower children and young individuals to actively engage with their local community and effect positive change. These projects are led by the children and young people themselves, allowing them to shape and execute initiatives aligned with their community’s needs and their own aspirations.

With over 17 years of experience, N-Gage has been a pioneering force in schools. Our journey began as a response to the pressing issue of educational exclusion. At the core of our mission is the commitment to engage with students who are disenchanted with education and at risk of exclusion.

We offer individualised support aimed at addressing specific issues, which can encompass the risk of criminality and strains within family relationships. Our comprehensive approach involves regular engagement with the young person and extends to providing support for their family.
