We work with young people aged 11-25 to help them re-engage with education, find employment or move away from anti-social behaviour, gang involvement and exploitative relationships.

Our Vision

A community where young people can turn adversity into advantage

Welcome to Ignite

We believe in the power of community so we build communities of change around young peoples’ interests and needs. We believe a healthy community draws people to itself, changes individuals and empowers them to impact their environment. Within these communities, positive relationships develop and barriers fall.

"Coming to Ignite has helped improve all aspects of my life and grow into an adult - I don't need the level of support that I once did. Ignite has equipped me with the skills to further my career and help other young people in the process"
