Ignite was set up in 2001 by a team of experienced youth workers who gave away free youth work for a year, supporting themselves in a variety of other ways. Our aim was to make life better for young people on the fringe of the education system. In 2007 we moved into our base in Wealdstone and in 2014 added a base in Rayners Lane.
With the rise in youth on youth violence around Harrow, Ignite started 2019 with a focus on young people who are at risk of or are already involved in gang affiliation. We have a developing prison pathway project and are offering sports and music opportunities to engage young people as a first step into Ignite.
Our aim has never changed. We engage, empower and transform the lives of young poeple.
We are faith-based but not faith biased.
