Empowering Ignite for 13 to 25 year olds

Empowering Ignite for 13 to 25 year olds

Last year Ignite was able to Engage, Empower and Transform the lives of 655 young people. Help us to achieve this again.

We did it!

On 18th Jul 2017 we successfully raised £3,620 of £2,000 target with 18 supporters in 21 days

New stretch target

Every extra pound that we receive helps us do more of what we do every day.

If we raise £250 in the next 3 weeks we have match funders who will match this and turn it into £2,000. So for every  £5 we raise we receive £40!!!!

Who we are: Ten youth workers who build alternative gangs around young peoples’ interests and needs.   Within these communities, positive relationships develop and new futures emerge. 

What we do:  We  go out on to the streets every day and evening to meet  new young people.  We offer them youth clubs, multi sports, mentoring, education and employment support.

Why is this important?  Everyone knows that knife crime is on the rise.  We are working to prevent young people getting drawn into anti social behaviour, offering pathways to new futures they hadn't even thought of before.

We will go the extra mile with every young person in Harrow who wants to make positive choices from now on!

How does it happen?  Change happens in relationships, where trust has been built and the young person can step away from the familiar into the unknown, knowing someone believes in them.
