Enterprising Youth was established in 2013 in response to a local need for social innovation, action and change when working with young people, their families and communities. 


Founded by Dawn Cretney and John Thomson, at present we have a small team of in-house experts who innovate and manage projects.


Our staff have backgrounds in urban development and regeneration, youth and community development, and education.  Our team include ethnographers who observe and document the lives of young people, their families and communities, in addition to youth work, social care, health care, leisure, arts and education professionals.


Our staff expertise is supported by our network of allied professionals and volunteers.


We are currently developing a youth board to help develop our organisation.  If you know of any young people who wish to get involved, please get in touch.
