JAMES Management Team

JAMES info…..

Joint Activities Service and Bradford Motor Education Project merged in 2010 to become Joint Activities and Motor Education Service (J.A.M.E.S.).  Between the two charities we have over 50 years experience of working with ‘at risk’ and ‘disadvantaged’ young people and families in the Bradford and Keighley district.  We deliver an array of programmes and services to young people aged 8-25 as well as work with families and local communities.

Our mission statement is: 
To provide an effective, caring and understanding environment where young people and families can overcome disadvantage and lack of provision to achieve their full potential in life through the enthusiastic delivery of relevant education, training and leisure opportunities. To enhance the quality of life in local communities through the development of community safety and regeneration strategies.  To support local and national government strategies which enhance opportunities for young people.
