Youth Work

Youth work engages in voluntary relationships with young people which promote achievement, confidence and self-esteem. We encourage and support young people to reflect on their values and make informed decisions about their lives and the communities of which they are a part.

We currently deliver over 30 hours of detached work a week, and we currently work in the following wards; Kingstanding; Stockland Green; Erdington; Tyburn; Trinity; Newhall.

Streetwise detached project

Working across the North of Birmingham, the aim of the project is to engage with disadvantaged youth people aged 11-19yrs old on the streets and encourage them to be social participants within their communities. All staff are qualified youth workers, with a passion for supporting young people with their needs and promoting positive activities and participation in the area.
