I started working at Teens Unite when the charity was founded 14 years ago. I am now the Fundraising Manager, which means I am responsible for raising money to enable us to fund the activities and residential stays we organise for the young people we support. We devote so much time to planning and organising our fundraising events,but the generosity of our supporters always astounds me.
Teens Unite has become such a big part of who I am and waking up and going to a job I love is truly a privilege. I’ve had the honour of meeting the most incredible people over the last 14 years who all have so much strength and determination. Every one of the incredible people we have helped since the charity started has personally touched my life and I am so proud of the charity Teens Unite is today.
Detailed below are our events for Teens, Volunteers, Fundraising and Challenges.
Volunteering with Teens Unite has changed my personality and outlook on life. When I hear all the amazing things the teens say about Teens Unite, I can tell they mean every word.
Teens Unite isn't just a charity to me, it was the beginning of restarting my life.
When Elliot started receiving the support of Teens Unite, I could see a change in him straightaway. His outlook on life was becoming positive again and I gained strength from seeing my little boy accepting what had happened and starting to move forward.
I needed help and that's where Teens Unite came in. I believe that everything happens for a reason, and the reason I met Teens Unite was to save my life.
With Teens Unite, I finally realised that I could climb out of this massive hole that I had been digging because I wasn't alone anymore.
If it wasn't for Teens Unite, I wouldn't be where I am now. They have been really supportive and given me the strength to push myself and not give up.
