Worth Unlimited wants young people to know that a better world is possible. That's why our strapline is "Inspiring Hope Together". Here in Birmingham and Solihull we are committed to this and helping young people reach their potential and have a flourishing, hope filled future. Below we highlight some of the ways we work alongside young people.
Long Term Working
We have been based in Birmingham and Solihull for over 12 years, and our experience demonstrates this long term approach enables significant change for young people and their communities.
Asset Based Approach
Here in Birmingham we believe that all young people have gifts, skills and talents that can enable them to play a unique role within their community. Rather than focusing on what is lacking, we focus on their strengths and how they can positively use them to bring about change in their own lives and in those around them.
Safe Places and Relationships With Significant Adults
We run a number of open access sessions providing young people the space to ask questions and explore their identity. Provision of these spaces helps young people to build relationships with their peers and significant adults.
Supporting young people to discover their purpose and passions is the start of their developmental journey. Making changes can be challenging for young people for many reasons, but with trusting relationships and mentoring, young people can move forward to achieve their goals and begin to realise their potential.
Our team are committed to journeying alongside local people to harness their skills, gifts and talents to create and lead the development of their community and the work and activities we provide to young people.
Connecting with others
Young people are a valuable part of their community, and youth work happens the most effectively when they connect to other people in their neighbourhoods. Connection with others, reduces isolation, makes a safer community and gives young people a sense of belonging.
