We do some really cool stuff- from skateparks to the Youth Parliament
All too often information for young people is aimed at adults (make that make sense?). In our discussions, we explore, explain and provide practical steps to young people how to navigate the world of work, making money and the importance of being ready to take the next steps….
This was a completely new activity for us at the youth club and I have to say, the young people were totally blown away and captivated every session throughout the 6 weeks. Brings me back to how we done things in the 70's - Salute to the entire Nu FOCUS team. Well done!
Working with Childre Looked After can sometimes be a complex task, but the way in which the project encouraged local providers to offer work placements was a refreshing and welcome method to youth participation and so we wanted to commend you for your work.
Many of the programmes and methodologies we deliver ourselves within the unit, but sometimes we partner with external agencies and in this case our team was surprised at learning a different approach. Thank you.
Giving our groups something fun, different and refreshing to do is important to us and the activities you provided gave them a chance to do things they've never done before.
Your youth work delivery helped us to highlight where there's been a lack of provision in the most deprived areas - based on feedback and participatory numbers, new activities have been setup. In particular, results from your activities supported the successful funding of Moor Lane skatepark.

We don’t believe in everybody winning – there will be ‘battles’ / situations that are most certainly being lost! Our role is to highlight these and provide support where we can or signpost where we cannot.
Our founding director has been a professional youth worker for over two decades – the principles and ethos of good youth work is used throughout our organisation to engage with young people over the long-term this then permeates into all aspects of our youth provision and staff delivery.
An essential element of our longevity is the fact that we move with the pulse of the youth. Not that we pander, but Nu FOCUS has recognised through extensive project evaluation that children transitioning from childhood yearn for socio-economic mobility – hence our youth enterprise strand.
