I co-founded Teens Unite over ten years ago with my good friend Debbie. Having supported other charities, we could see there was a need for support for these young people, and have worked together over the years to make Teens Unite what it is today.
I work extensively to encourage support of Teens Unite and our work. Each year I design and deliver our annual Fundraising Gala, these have developed into a series of “Tales”, each uniquely themed and as spectacular as the last.
I am so proud of how far we have come and looking forward to the exciting journey ahead.
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.
