We are passionate about young people and their communities and our “Together We Can” intergenerational community building project is a key part of this. Based in the heart of Firs and Bromford Estate we bring together youth work and adult-focused asset based community-building work to maximise the opportunities for intergenerational (as well as cross-cultural) interaction and relationship-building.
We run a number of Open Access safe spaces for young people giving them the opportunity to engage with their peers and positive adult role-models in a safe space. We are always looking for ways in which both young people and local neighbours can contribute in these spaces.
We are committed to creatively engage with both young people and our neighbourhood to make our community a better, more connected place. We place an emphasis on being locally rooted, using an Asset based approach and being there for the long haul.
1:1 Mentoring and Support: Community based and School based programmes
We offer 1:1 and group mentoring, both in the community setting or in the school setting. Our community based mentoring works with individuals enabling them to overcome barriers that might hinder them from developing and engaging in education and or community activities. Our school based provision is based around a 6 week personal and social development programme. Contact us if you are interested in partnering with us.
“The additional support we have received from Worth Unlimited is so valuable, especially to some our most vulnerable students. The mentoring and support offered to these students is something we just could not offer in school” Mr Pete Higgins, Headteacher
Youth Social Action
“Youth Social Action is Young people taking practical action in the service of others to create positive change in their community”
