About Us

ENYP was officially launched in September 2007 as a Charity to oversee and develop youth work initially in Greater Norwich, and now we work across Norfolk and the surrounding counties. ENYP is focused on local communities responding to identified needs of children and young people and making provision to support issues at a local level. We are a registered charity and are supported by local churches, schools, agencies and volunteers. ENYP provides a wide range of youth work activity in the area – in clubs, schools, and community projects. We currently work with over 2000 children and young people through delivery of over 50 clubs and activities, and the majority of our work is based in the most deprived areas of Norwich.

Our Constitution

ENYP exists to promote the mental, spiritual, social, moral and physical development of young people within Norfolk and the surrounding areas (the area of benefit) regardless of their ethnic grouping, political persuasion, sexual orientation, or religious beliefs so as to develop their full capabilities in order that they may grow to maturity as well-rounded individuals and enable them to become responsible members of society.
