APTCOO’s vision is to support young people from early years through to adulthood to enable them to achieve their full potential in life. They have created unique spaces in the local community for almost 30 years, based in Mansfield and more recently branching out with properties in Budby and Thoresby set within the beautiful Sherwood Forest. They are motivated by the social, economic, health, environmental and community benefits, and are committed to bringing those benefits to as many people as possible, including marginalised and vulnerable groups.
