Youth Unity Clacton Detached Youth Work

Detached Youth Work on
the Percy King Estate, Clacton

Youth Outreach work in the community.

Youth Unity outreach service functions as a secure haven catering to the needs of young individuals and is conveniently situated on Percy King Estate, Langham Drive, Clacton-on-Sea.

Every Tuesday 3pm to 6.30pm – FREE to attend all ages are welcome, both boys and girls.

Its central focus centres on involving young people all aimed at fostering a robust sense of community among the youth. We encourage sports, we found a game of football is always appreciated, but we cater for all, and tend to let the young people decide on the activity of the week.

In close partnership with Essex Council for Voluntary Youth Services.

Our primary objective is to establish a secure and welcoming space within the community, providing an opportunity for the community to unite and gain a deeper understanding of the youth and their requirements. Often, young people find themselves without guidance or suitable destinations, and Youth Unity is dedicated to offering prospects and directing them to other engaging activities.

Our goal is to provide valuable direction and advice by pointing towards various activities within the local vicinity. Additionally, we extend assistance and guidance on topics that hold significance for both young individuals and parents.


Guiding Futures, Igniting Potential: Mentoring the Next Generation, working in partnership with Tendring Council

Working in partnership with the Community Safety Team  at Tendring District Council

Our Serious Youth Violence Mentor is a dedicated professional who will be providing guidance, support, and intervention to young individuals who are at risk of or involved in serious youth violence. They will work closely with young people to address the underlying factors that contribute to their involvement in violent behaviours and help them develop positive alternatives and pathways for their future.

Just some of the key pathways to ensure we are supporting vulnerable young people 

Mentoring and Building Relationships: Establish a trusting and supportive relationship with young individuals at risk of serious youth violence. Act as a role model, providing guidance, empathy, and a non-judgmental approach.

Risk Assessment and Intervention: Conduct thorough assessments to identify the specific risk factors and underlying issues contributing to a young person’s involvement in serious youth violence. Develop individualised intervention plans to address these factors effectively.

Emotional and Behavioral Support: Provide emotional support and help young individuals develop strategies to manage anger, frustration, and other emotions in a constructive manner. Assist in building resilience and coping mechanisms to navigate challenging situations.
