Integrate UK

Program Objectives and Unique Needs Addressed

Integrate UK is a youth led charity that empowers young people to take an active and positive role in transforming the society they live in. Our service users are central to decision making: we have four young trustees who lead youth steering groups and report back to the board; some of our older members work in our office or manage some of the creative projects. 

Program Description

Integrate UK aims to deliver peer education in schools around challenging issues such as female genital mutilation (FGM), grooming for radicalisation and/or right wing extremism, gang and drug culture or child sexual exploitation (CSE). The resources we have created are designed for young people in schools to raise awareness on FGM and how and where young people can seek help if they need it.
