Our core belief revolves around ensuring that every young person is treated fairly and as a unique individual, regardless of factors such as age, gender, race, religion, ability, or background.As an organisation, our primary objective is to facilitate the thriving and realisation of the full potential of young individuals, ensuring they are thoroughly prepared for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead in their adult lives.Through collaborative endeavours with diverse stakeholders, Youth Unity CIC strives to diminish vulnerability and safeguard local communities, in line with the Government's strategy.

Today, we remember the Grendel Tower tragedy and honor the lives lost. Let us never forget the strength and resilience of the community in the face of adversity. Our thoughts are with all those affected, and we stand together in unity and remembrance. #GrenfellTower #NeverForget #communitystrength
Excited to wrap up the week with our final workshop highlighting the dangers of vaping, especially for young people transitioning to the next stage of their school life - BIG SCHOOL! These sessions are crucial in equipping them with the knowledge to make informed choices. Here’s to a healthy and empowered future! #VapingAwareness #BigSchoolPrep #YouthEducation @uttlesforddc @essexpoliceuk @essexlive @essexboysgirlsclubs

I'm a youth worker from North West London. I was looking to hire a mobile recording studio to come down to our youth centre for a project. Someone recommended Youth Unity who manage the Unity Hub, so I got in touch with their founder and managing director Shirley. From the first phone call I knew I'd found the right project partner. We worked together for six sessions to deliver some brilliant music and podcasting projects with young people from our centre. Shirley, Paul and the team came down every week with energy, enthusiasm and creativity. They really inspired our young people and created lasting memories, and together we smashed the outcomes for our initial project. We cant wait to work with them again soon!

Working with Youth Unity has been a fun and exciting experience for us as a developer. The youth engagement programme we ran in partnership with them, ‘Point of View’, is a best practice case study of how community organisations can work with developers to create opportunities that generate social value outcomes for young people. Youth Unity were an exceptional partner to work with in their organisation of the project, compassion, and passion for the young people, and understanding of our remit and social value agenda as a developer. The project also spanned across engagement with our supply chain, and Youth Unity were able to adapt to understand and meet the requirements of each of our supply chain partners, from health and safety matters through to privacy and data obligations. Thank you to the Youth Unity team for making this project so unique, fun, and impactful. - Dominvs Group

I loved working with Youth Unity because it gave my son a lot of opportunities for him and opened a lot of doors for him. It made him change perspectives of the world and what changes should be made to it. I hope more things like this would come to the future and i loved to see my son enrolled in such a loving and caring community. I would recommend joining this project. Youth Unity is like a loving and caring family.

Our Son Ruben was involved with the POV project. He enjoyed the filming in London, and the trip to Cornwall so much.. he almost came home a bit more 'grown up'. We are so proud of his achievements. Hats off to Shirley, Paul and all the team. Eternally grateful for the love and ongoing support you give to our young people ❤️

I've had the pleasure of working with Youth Unity over the past few years. They are an organisation that is doing wonderful things for the youth in London communities. Providing opportunities, vision, direction, belief and self esteem for the next generation which is all so important but sometimes overlooked in this day and age. Keep raising the bar👍🏽
