Kings Corner Project
Kings Corner Project
Kings Corner Project is a small, local charity working with disadvantaged young people between the ages of 14 and 21 to restore their faith in themselves, their community and the world around them.
Kings Corner Project is a long established, small, local charity operating in one of the poorest areas in England. Some of our young people have become chefs, lawyers, engineers or designers. Some come to us just because we provide a safe, non-judgmental place for a chat. We have a reputation for good, innovative youth work which improves the outlooks for young people with whom we work and for working well with other local organisations and the community. We work with young people mostly between the ages of 14 and 21, who have become disillusioned with the institutions and adults around them. As a result, they will fail to make the best of the opportunities available to them. They may be unemployed or out of education. They may not be aware of the opportunities or support available to them, or be excluded by prejudice from the world to which they have a right. Outside such structures, young people may choose less productive activities and become involved in drugs, crime and possibly violence and their long term life chances diminish significantly. Our aim is to re-establish the confidence of young people both in themselves, relevant institutions and their community, so that they can make the best of the city around them. We provide a safe stable and supportive environment, a range of drop in activities and programmes, and one-on-one services such as interview and CV support and informal counselling according to the needs and wishes of the young people who come to us.
Kings Corner Project aims to:
- To provide a safe and stable environment for young people where they are not concerned by gang activity, violence or fear of crime.
- To support disadvantaged young people into employment and training, and to provide access to opportunities of which they may not be aware, or may not understand to be open to them
- To respond to the expressed needs and wishes of young people in order to deliver the services which provide value to them
- To re-establish the confidence of young people in themselves and their communities so they can play a full part in the life and activities going on around them
