  • Need

    Need

    Young people come to JusB for a range of reasons. They may want to socialise, they may have issues at home or school, they may not even be at school. JusB helps each one to discover talents and learn how to deal with the difficulties that they have in their lives.

    Solution

    We love seeing young people flourish. The music studios and specialist tutors attract young people through our doors. Young people discover new skills and talents, work under instruction and as part of a team. Lyric writing workshops help young people think about their use of language. Songs can be an outlet for anger and disappointment. Youth workers are on hand to talk through issues and help young people set themselves goals or access other help.

  • Impact

    Impact

    Young people who access our Information, Advice and Guidance set goals and then we assess how they are getting on with their goals at each meeting.
    We have been in contact young people after they have left JusB to discuss how they are doing. This provides case studies and quotes.

    Risk

    We have risk assessments for our work and policies that are updated regularly so that we can check that they are being implemented.
    For example Safeguarding and Child Protection issues are dealt with through taking up references, DBS checks, internal and external training.

    Reporting

    We are happy to discuss with donors their reporting requirements at the beginning of our relationship with them. We can report with narratives, figures, case studies, quotes and more.

  • Why Us?

    Why Us?

    JusB has over 10 years experience of youth work in the area. We partner well with local organisations to provide the best possible help for young people. Where we put young people in touch with specialist agencies (eg homeless charities) we continue to work with the young person so that they do not feel shunted from one place to the next.
    Our staff are qualified and experienced. Our volunteers go through an induction and where necessary training. We have the London Youth Quality mark.
