“By prioritising young people, Enthusiasm’s intervention ensures that those who are vulnerable to gang related violence, are well-equipped with the skills and resilience to lead productive lives away from violence. It is extremely powerful to hear directly from those who work day by day to tackle youth violence and exploitation and especially from the young people who have benefited from the support and services”.
Victoria Atkins –Cabinet member for Crime, safeguarding and vulnerability
“We are committed to support young people, one element of that is our partnership with Enthusiasm. Derby Homes have worked with Enthusiasm since the start, some 25 years ago. Enthusiasm’s greatest gift is working with young people to release their potential, repairing communities and reducing crime. Enthusiasm has a hugely successful reach last year alone through our partnership 100 young people entered the mentoring programme. The dedication and commitment of the whole team at Enthusiasm really does changes lives”.

“Enthusiasm offer young people the opportunity to change and develop a voice giving young people a route into mainstream society”.
Rebecca Bryant – CEO at Resolve
“My role was to investigate gang crimes, I was also keen to understand how the Police could work with the Local Authority and Voluntary Sector to better manage the risk posed to both individuals and the affected local communities. I continued to work with the Enthusiasm Trust throughout my tenure as Divisional Commander and this arrangement formed part of a more cohesive strategy to reduce gang violence across the City.”
