Worth Unlimited Birmingham and Solihull
Why we need your help
We work alongside young people in communities across Birmingham and Solihull to help them become…
- Resilient and strong – people who are able to negotiate the demands of life: Our open access youth work provides young people with safe spaces; safe, caring, down-to-earth adults to talk with and consistent, long-term, reliable access to support. In this context, we use a range of one-to-one and group activities give them opportunities to face and deal with challenges to develop resilience and strength.
- Confident and proactive – people who understand and consciously utilise their knowledge, skills and characteristics: Our asset-based approach means that our activities are designed to enable young people to discover their gifts, skills, talents and passions and explore the potential of their unique combination of qualities. Our team members have a diverse range of skills, which they use in creative and experimental ways, role-modelling for young people many different possible ways to live.
- Informed and alert contributors to the world – self-aware, critical thinkers, people with a clear sense of identity, purpose and vision for the world: As we are rooted in our local communities, we are able to support young people in developing positive intergenerational relationships, working alongside others in their neighbourhoods to benefit others and exploring their own understanding of “the common good”. As part of our "Together We Can" project, we offer young people involvement in intergenerational social action projects. We also work with young people through social enterprise (Listen Threads clothing brand and Gear Up cycle shop/club).
