Youth Unity is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to providing effective help and support to vulnerable young people and adults who are affected by group violence (gangs), drugs, and other forms of exploitation such as human trafficking, CSE (Child Sexual Exploitation), and extremism. Youth Unity works in collaboration with statutory organisations, commissioned services, and charities to provide a cohesive approach to solutions.

Youth Unity CIC focuses on improving opportunities for all individuals, particularly young people from all backgrounds. Youth Unity believes that by improving the overall health and well-being of an individual, they are better equipped to make informed choices and decisions. Youth Unity CIC works with various stakeholders to provide support and interventions for individuals affected by group violence, drugs, and exploitation. This may include providing counselling, mentoring, education and employment opportunities, and other practical support to help individuals break free from the cycle of violence and exploitation.

Youth Unity CIC also works to raise awareness about the issues of group violence, drugs, and exploitation in communities and schools through educational workshops and training. We also provide training and support to professionals working with vulnerable young people and adults to enhance their capacity to address these complex issues effectively. The organisation is committed to being transparent and accountable in its operations and strives to make a positive impact on the lives of young people and adults affected by group violence, drugs, and exploitation, with the goal of improving their opportunities and well-being.

This approach aligns with the Government's 4P strategy, which focuses on Pursue, Prevent, Protect, and Prepare. Pursue involves tackling offenders, Prevent focuses on early intervention to stop people from becoming involved in crime, Protect aims to safeguard vulnerable individuals, and Prepare involves being prepared to respond to incidents and supporting individuals to exit criminality. Youth Unity CIC's partnership approach aligns with the Government's strategy, aiming to reduce vulnerability and safeguard local communities through collaborative efforts with various stakeholders.
