How we make Our Impact:
Urban Heard believes in every young person who walks through our door. We do not focus on their past but their future and will use the arts, mentoring and self-efficacy to support the young person to achieve in life and to make positive choices. Most importantly we don't do it to them but with them so to produce sustainable change.
In the past 5 years we have:
Employed 260 14 -17yr olds
Delivered workshops to 13,564 teenagers
Engaged with over 120,000 people through social media
Engaged with 11,428 people in the community through peer-led interventions.

What Young People have to say:
"Working with Urban Heard was fun and not boring. The youth workers are not your usual boring youth workers they get us".
"I took part in Urban Heard's workshop which taught me loads of things I didn't already know about drugs and alcohol."
"Kem and Hira are the Best youth workers i've ever met. So down to earth and easy to talk too when you have a problem."
"The Urban Heard team out of many other youth organisations have been the most helpful to my personal growth. Talking to us about the mistakes they made and preventing us from making the same mistakes. They are people I feel I can trust, to support me when no one else will."
"Getting involved in a project has really helped my confidence. I am really quiet but on outreach I was going up to strangers to tell them about our project and it felt amazing."
