Youth Unity CIC is a “not for profit” organisation established to provide effective help and support to vulnerable young people and adults affected by group violence (gangs), drugs and other forms of exploitation such as human trafficking, CSE and extremism. We work in collaboration with statutory organisations, commissioned services and charities to provide a more cohesive approach to solutions. We focus on improving opportunities for all, especially young people from disadvantaged backgrounds. Our overall belief is that by helping to improve the overall health and well-being of an individual they can make better informed choices and decisions. We offer mentoring, workshops and training for young people, professionals, parents and carers.

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.

This week, one of our Youth Unity CIC ambassadors had the privilege of attending the GLA's YPAV (Young People Against Violence) group. Following this, there was a YPAV board team building event at Puttshack Bank. This event was a fantastic opportunity to provide feedback and engage in discussions about the YPAV pilot projects.

Our Youth Unity CIC youth ambassador program holds immense significance for several reasons. It offers young individuals the chance to cultivate crucial leadership and communication skills. By representing their peers and communities, our youth ambassadors gain valuable experience in public speaking, networking, and problem-solving. These skills will undoubtedly contribute to their personal and professional growth.

We are grateful to the Greater London Authority and London's Violence Reduction Unit for their support in preventing and protecting against violence. #prevent #protect @ldn_gov @mentivity @mopacldn @london_youth @mayorofldn

Romford today was an absolute blast! The town was buzzing with energy and excitement. It was amazing to see all the young people back to school and joining in on the action. Some of them even stopped by for a thrilling game of badminton, while a few others got caught up in the world of podcasting. It was a day filled with fun, laughter, and new experiences. What a fantastic time in Romford! 🙏💥 @lbofhavering @haveringyouth @thehaveringdaily @romfordmarket @romfordessex @simeonddba @chayconnolly @thebreweryromford @romford_liberty_sd

I just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed working alongside Youth Unity and seeing how YU has brought the community together with events, workshops and projects you have run in Erith. Shirley's personal heart for the people in the community is as clear as day, and the ideas and optimism everyone here has for Erith are amazing - the team is fab, and have really put "Erithians" first! Thank you for working alongside us at The Exchange, supporting us and everything we do as a community space too. I loved that whenever we worked together, the space would be full of young people (and their families!) having fun and enjoying life. You have managed to facilitate such joy. Xx

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👍🏽

I could not be more grateful for the work this team are doing. As a mother I gave you mu son and you brought him back on a beautiful trajectory towards becoming the man he wants to be. I saw his growth and the opportunities provided, plus great food...I could not have asked for more. I pray you continue to grow and provide these experiences for more children. Thank you for being an absolute blessing to our family. Oh and thank you for the amazing communication.
