About Us

“Growing the Good”

One Together is a community interest company delivering a variety of creative programmes to children, young people and their families, all with the purpose of developing confidence, positivity, enhancing self-esteem and promoting happiness. In short – Growing the good!

One Together CIC has evolved over the last ten years, from its starting point of delivering a wide variety of grass roots community-based projects to becoming a respected provider of mindfulness and wellbeing workshops.

One Together is managed by a team of directors, all with a shared passion for helping people to reach their full potential and enjoy life. We all believe that if people are treated with kindness, respect and understanding then they can flourish and achieve anything.

We work with many like minded partners whilst overseeing each project personally to ensure it fits with our philosophy.

Hayley Kearns

Hayley Kearns is a primary school teacher with 20 years experience. Her specialism is English and during her career she has also spent time delivering phonics and SPaG training. Mindfulness is a huge part of Hayley’s life and becoming an accredited Youth Mindfulness and SOMA facilitator has meant she can share her passion for this with children and young people.

She is always looking for new and exciting ways to bring the power of mindfulness to children and young people and loves seeing young people thrive as their confidence develops.
