Annual Report 2022-23

Take a look at our highlights from 2022/23…

As an organisation, Eikon has made fantastic progress in recent years, and we’ve grown and developed significantly. This year we have, and will continue to, invest in being the ‘best in class’ for the quality of our services for young people, our impact, and safeguarding practice. Key strategic projects have hugely progressed this year including:

  • completing the first stage of our strategic review of services,
  • improving our outcome measurement and impact reporting,
  • furthering our equality, diversity, and inclusion work,
  • and developing our new brand and website.

We wouldn’t have been able to achieve all this, and continue providing critical support for young people, without the dedication and passion of all our staff and volunteers.

“I can be open and honest and not be judged by what I say.”

“I just needed someone to listen to me… I’m here today because they did.”

“It helped having someone to talk to about the problems I have at school and home and things that make me anxious.”

“Thank you for helping me through a lot of emotional times and giving me courage to carry on with all my family issues or my insecurities.”

“Eikon feels safer than other places like the canteen or playground for lots of reasons.”

“Look through the ‘Activities and performance’ section of this report and you’ll see just how much of an impact we’ve had in the lives of children, young people, and their families. This is thanks to each and every one of our dedicated staff and volunteers, generous supporters, and valued partners.”
