We believe in the power of community so  we build communities of change around young peoples’ interests and needs.  We believe a healthy community draws people to itself, changes individuals and empowers them to impact their environment. Within these communities, positive relationships develop and barriers fall. 


Our Vision

We build a community of young people with the aim of engaging and empowering them in order to ignite change. We want to create a community in which young people have the confidence and self-belief to make positive changes and transform their lives. 


The Journey

Our youth workers are committed to journeying with young people, many of whom are at-risk, marginalised or face barriers to  achieving success in life. 

The three stages of the journey may take years but we are about long-term commitment: 

  • Engagement: making meaningful contact with young people through activity and education-based programmes; 
  • Empowerment: challenging values and behaviour and equipping young people with the tools, resources and opportunities to make positive choices in their current situations;
  • Transformation: supporting young people to change the direction of their lives away from negative influences and raising aspirations, set goals for the future and support them into long-term transformation.
