YOUTH 4 U

A gender mixed group of 15-20 young people working on social action projects which matter to them. This group is based in Accrington Road Community Centre and working in collaboration with UCO.

The members of the group are from the surrounding areas of Audley Range. This is an area which is predominantly made up of families originating from the South Asian sub – continent. With deprivations issues including health, housing, racial integration, poverty, drug/alcohol abuse and mobility just to name a few, it is our objective to tackle these issues by educating and empowering young people.

The Youth 4 U Forum is supported by United Community Organisation (UCO) which was set up in 2006 to support communities around Blackburn and to bring around positive change. The organisation has supported many young people to gain new skills and experiences in the most deprived parts of Blackburn.
