Ted Howarth founded Project Challenge in 1991 in order to help and give second chances to disadvantaged young people. We became a registered charity in 1997. Since then the charity has grown from strength to strength, growing from 1 programme to 3 and retaining the ability to deliver great work to young people.
Throughout the years, with the help of funding and dedicated staff, we have helped many young people achieve their goals and improve their lifestyles. This is down to Ted Howarth’s idea of "not letting peoples' pasts get in the way of their futures."
Ted sadly lost his life to cancer in 2003, aged 56, his legacy and hard work continues to shine and be upheld by the charity’s brilliant and hardworking staff.
