Welcome to Young People First, a registered charity working to improve young people’s lives.
Brunswick Youth Project Brunswick ward has the highest number of Priority Families and the second highest proportion of children in poverty in Warwick District. More than twelve years ago, we moved our main office so we could increase our support for young people living in this area of multiple deprivation.
Helping young people into work Not all young people thrive at school. Bullying, bereavement, undiagnosed dyslexia and chaotic family life can lead to disrupted schooling, few qualifications and disillusionment with formal education.
Sharp Minds We have seen an increase across all our work in the numbers of young people with complex emotional problems, including high levels of anxiety, low self-esteem, self-harm and social isolation.
A Childhood in Care Our qualified Youth and Community Workers offer practical work-related activities combined with one-to-one mentoring to young people struggling with living independently. We support care-leavers to improve their confidence and emotional well-being, manage debt and tenancy so they are less likely to become homeless, build their skills, go to college and secure work.
