Building hope, unlocking potential and realising worth in young people is what Worth Unlimited is all about.

Our vision is for local Christians to be equipped to make a contribution to addressing the needs of marginalised and excluded young people throughout the UK .

Our vision comes to fruition through local people bringing hope where there is despair and inclusion and participation where there is risk of exclusion and disaffection.

Our teams of staff and volunteers seek to engage with local culture, model grace, hope and justice and demonstrate the worth of young people, wherever they are at.

Our strong portfolio of programmes are creative, innovative, flexible and engaging but we see that our identity is being defined by who we are rather than what we do.

Throughout the country Worth Unlimited is building a difference in the lives of young people.

We are creative, innovative and flexible youthworkers offering personal support and experiential learning opportunities through our network of grassroots branches and partners across the United Kingdom who relate to a small core infrastructure which develops new initiatives and provides professional support services to the frontline teams.

We are entirely committed to developing a learning community within the Christian youth work community that operates at the edges of our society and we are working together to seek to continuously improve our understanding and approaches to the needs of young people.

“I used to work in Residential Child Care for Social Services. Every day I was looking after young people who had low self esteem and little confidence in their educational abilities. I realised that the Christian Community is a great resource able to demonstrate in a multitude of ways that young people have worth and potential no matter what their backgrounds and circumstances.

By building a link with Worth Unlimited, I was able to tap into a range of resources and practical support which helped me establish a bridge between the Church and its message of hope, and young people who would not necessarily enter a church building but did need to know that they had significance and value.

As a result of Worth Unlimited, the Christian community in Waltham Forest has made a difference in the lives of hundreds of marginalised young people in Waltham Forest in the past few years.”

"Too many young people are being left behind and left out in our society. The negative self image that those on the margins of our communities have about themselves are reinforced and amplified by the seeming success story of other youngsters around them. Worth Unlimited has a valuable contribution to make in changing this, helping young people to transform their view of themselves and enabling them to make a valued contribution to their wider world”
