  • Mission statement

    Greenwich Youth For Christ is a faith based, local charity that works with children, young people and their families in and around Greenwich South East London. We take a pro active approach to helping families and young people break out of cycles of deprivation, crime and disadvantage. We are committed to working with young people who can be described as being socially excluded. We actively promote equality of opportunity and encourage young people to play a full part in the life of their communities.

    This is done through community based projects and by going into schools, providing pre - exclusion work, setting up parenting courses for local parents and offering counselling and therapy. We are also actively involved in training and supporting churches in our area. We are based at OneSpace a community hub on the Kidbrooke Estate. Our projects are Boys2 men, Girls Thyme, VIP Family Support and Steps 2 Success. We offer mentoring, one to one support and drop in sessions. We also train youth workers and help churches in our area to run youth activities. We steer young people from gang involvement and anti social behaviour, offer help to struggling families and help young people to address difficulties in and outside of their schools.
