PHOENIX RISING is a new name for an established team of locally based youth workers and teachers’ who have been doing community and youth work in London Borough of Brent for over 20 years.
Although based in Brent and mainly operating within the NW10 postcode area, PHOENIX RISING works with all disadvantaged children and young people across Brent and neighbouring boroughs
a world where achievement and success is the norm for all children and young people.
Our Purpose is to provide support, activities and opportunities for disadvantaged children and young people primarily living in the NW10 postcode (also across Brent, Barnet and the neighbour boroughs) which develop their skills, capacities and capabilities to enable them to participate in society as mature and responsible individuals in an area where there is a growing youth population and there have been major cuts in youth service provision.
We aim to achieve this through:
The provision of recreational and leisure time activities provided in the interest of social welfare and designed to improve their conditions of life.
In order to achieve our mission we:
new, innovative and high profile activities that give young people the opportunity to develop new skills and experiences.
inclusive and positive opportunities for young people through which to engage, excel and achieve, challenging the negative perception of local children and young people generally held by the general public through regular community engagement activities and the promotion of community cohesion locally, nationally and globally
young people who have vision and voice to effect change and motivate other young people through youth inspired and youth-led activities to recognise that ‘the sky is not the limit’ and that given the opportunity with support, they will achieve.
