ENYP was officially launched in September 2007 as a Christian Charity to oversee and develop youth work initially in Greater Norwich. Over recent years our work has expanded to cover Norfolk and the surrounding counties and we support children, young people and local communities, predominantly in deprived areas. We are a registered charity and are supported by local churches, schools, agencies and volunteers.
ENYP provides a wide range of youth work, children’s activities and community initiatives and projects. We work with over 2,500 children and young people through our programmed activities, engage with thousands through our schools and community work, and deliver hundreds of initiatives.
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.
