Hear our story about our work, our plans and the people we work with.
Established in 2011 Community Court Yard is a not for profit social enterprise that seeks to create a better world, through the delivery of youth and community work which at its' core is based around grassroots community engagement. Working with young people in the communities that they are a part of.
Our work is rooted in challenging the narrative, in order to change the composition of the community by creating connections. Working relationally, bringing people together to create social change. We deliver traditional youth work, bespoke alternative education and creative workshops based on the youth work cirriculum.
Based at our youth hub, The Yard. Our work uses a practical, hands on approach. With a focus on social education, it builds capacity by reconnecting people into their communities and utilises collective solutions which unlock potential and create social change for the individual and the wider community.
We want to change the composition of communities to celebrate talents and develop potential.
For us the best way of bringing about change is through creating a space where each person's authentic voice can be heard.
Working together to make a good idea great, is fundamental to all of the work that we undertake.
Our work champions collectivism.
As we know that doing something on your own is all well and good, but if positive social change is to become part of the fabric of society, then people power is needed to make changes that matter sustainable.
