One Housing Youth Services team helps young people get a good start in life. We run a wide range of projects and programmes including exciting and engaging opportunities to build young people’s skills and confidence.
We aim to enhance the growth of independence in our young people and increase the skills and long term prospects of our members and their families. We provide new experiences for our families and give them new and exciting opportunities.
Our work has a focus in providing educational, safe and, of course, fun programmes to help young people learn and achieve. We apply this to our practice alongside the values of One Housing; Collaboration, Ambition, Respect, Excellence and Engagement.

In the past we’ve visited Southend, Thorpe Park and Bournemouth to name a few; we’ve also been water skiing, kayaking and laser tag, among many other fun and exciting activities.

Our programmes are bespoke and tailored to our members – so if there is a particular session that you are interested in, then let us know.
Currently, we are running from four different community centres in London:
