Barrier Breakers Foundation is dedicated to inspiring soft skills development and creating positive change.

Since 2000 we’ve been delivering innovative training and educational projects, using our award-winning, in-house methodology BBM®. These projects offer disadvantaged and marginalised individuals the opportunity to develop essential skills, reach for their potential, and enrich their lives.

Flowing through all our work is a focus on the whole person.  Every Barrier Breakers project is designed to encourage the development of soft skills – a range of 40 skills, including confidence, communication, teamwork, self-motivation, time-management, and creativity.

Soft skills determine how we live, learn, and work, and are now considered so essential personally and professionally that they’re also known as the C21st skills. They empower individuals to take control of their life, increase their employability, and improve their well-being.

Our current focus is working with young people, primarily girls and young women, aged 15 – 24, inspiring them to achieve their potential and to gain the employability and life skills that will allow them to do this.
