What We Do


Youth Ambassador

Youth Ambassador Programme


Our Youth Ambassadors Programme is our youth governance committee who represent all young people of East London express their needs. Youth Ambassadors help make key decisions for the future of our charity including developing existing and new services which makes sure young people really are at the heart of everything we do.

Youth Groups

Youth Groups


Our youth groups help young people aged 11 to 25 make new friends and learn new skills. Groups are youth led meaning many of the decisions are made by young people for young people including the activities we do. Our experienced workers can help explore issues effecting young people as well as offering a space for young people to be their selves without any expectations or judgements.

Youth Mental Health Group

Youth Mental Health Group


We meet weekly with young people aged between 16 and 25 living within Tower Hamlets and surrounding London boroughs, although our group is non therapeutic we can offer a safe and accepting space to talk about mental health issues. We can help you develop useful social and life skills as well as your own personal coping techniques.

COLOURS

The new youth group for 16-25 year olds who identify as LGBTQ+ or are questioning their gender or sexuality.

Launching on Thursday 18 April
