EPIC ‘Team around the Street’ works with young people where they are; to build confidence, resilience and to provide opportunities in their local area.
What is Street Based Youth Work?
It's simple really, our Youth Support Workers hit the streets and engage with young people in a range of positive activities where they are spending their time. Since the lock down has been eased, that can mean groups of young people can meet in parks and outdoor spaces.
EPIC will spend time with young people, encourage social distancing and support them to engage in activities that interest them. Whether that's exploring education options, looking for work opportunities or fun community projects to help keep young people active and engaged. Our Youth Workers will help inspire and motive young people through these challenging times.
Where can you find us?
We will be working in areas that have been identified by our partners and that need some additional support to engage young on the streets into positive activities. If you have an accessible space that you can offer for us to support our work with young people on their patch, then please get in touch.
How can local youth work providers get involved?
We are keen to work with any local providers and encourage young people to safely access other local services. If you would like to hear more about the work we are doing, please get in touch.
