What do we do?
How much, when & where?
What will I learn?
So we bring people together to overcome some of society’s most complex issues through the power of volunteering.
We partner with communities to overcome adversity, tackling social isolation and loneliness, improving health, developing skills and opportunity and making sure young people can lead change. And because we’re a national charity, we do this at scale, sharing our expertise and building partnerships to make an even bigger impact.
We turn local knowledge and energy into action and progress, building stronger communities and a better future for all.
In October 2020 we launched new strategy – Our Manifesto for Change. Based on the impact our volunteers and programmes have in communities across the UK, we will bring people together through volunteering to build stronger communities so that everyone has an opportunity to thrive.

|West Bowling Youth Initiative||
The West Bowling Youth Initiative (WBYI) is a small charity and local voluntary sector organisation based in a multi-cultural area of Bradford. It was established in 1991 by local people to work with predominately young British Pakistani Muslim men, especially those who were at risk of offending. The initial project was supported by The Prince’s Trust and subsequently gained funding and backing from other charities, EU and government funding and ongoing support from the local authority.
Over the last 25 years, WBYI has broadened its remit and has developed a strong reputation for successfully engaging hard to reach young people, including those excluded or struggling at school, ex-offenders and those in the criminal justice system and others facing a difficult transition to adulthood. WBYI currently works with a core age range of 13 to 25 year olds including, employment support programmes; alternative curriculum programmes for schools and crime prevention work through personal and social development projects. In addition, school holiday programmes and sports activities cater for local 7 to 13 year olds and increasingly there is a demand for volunteering and leisure activity.
WBYI has evolved and is highly respected part of the community and increasingly works in partnership with other organisations – voluntary sector projects, sports clubs, employers and the local authority. It is also now engaging young people from other communities, including traditional white working class neighbourhoods (Holmewood and Bierley) and new migrant communities (Manchester Road and Little Horton) closer to the city centre. This is an indication of how WBYI has matured and is ideally placed to facilitate an expansion of its methodology to address new challenges with new communities.

We develop the capacity and skills of the members of the socially and economically disadvantaged local community of Little Horton and the City of Bradford in such a way that they are better able to identify, and help meet their needs and participate more fully in society.
We promote social 'inclusion' by preventing people from becoming socially excluded, relieving the needs of those people who are socially excluded and helping them to integrate into society. This benefits the community, without distinction of sex, sexual orientation, race or of political, religious opinions.
