How We Create Change

We take a relational and positive approach which provides support and skills to disadvantaged young people, helping them to overcome barriers they are facing and build a brighter future. We are a team of experienced youth workers and counsellors who care about the local community, and between us we have a total of 64 years of delivering services to young people in Leatherhead.

Our Approach Involves…

Every Day Youth Work

Offering services to young people every day to ensure they have things to do and places to go. At BFree Youth Cafe, we offer a safe, supportive base 5 days a week.

Prioritising Relationship

We take a relational approach to our youth work, ensuring that we build positive and appropriate relationships with young people and their families.

Being Holistic

From saying hello to a young person for the first time, through to supporting them into employment as an adult, we aim to offer a holistic service which supports every stage of their development as a young person.

Co-Production

We believe that young people should have the opportunity to shape and lead the youth work they engage in. We have several youth councils and steering groups to ensure young people take ownership over the projects at LYP.
