Coronavirus Covid-19 update of our services

Since March 2020, we have completely revised and adapted our internal and external frontline services to ensure the safety of staff, young adult clients, communities, and organisational partners. Also to ensure the continuity of the highest level of intervention coaching and support to our young adult clients.


Welcome to Streets of Growth, a front edge prevention and intervention charity that was born out of the very streets and council estates we engage today in east London. Our name is our aim re-engaging young adults aged 15-25 years who, for whatever reason have become stuck, are caught up in harms way, may be gang associated or affiliated, and involved in criminality and violence etc.


As you are reading this web page, one of our dedicated staff team will be engaged either face to face or virtually with one of our young clients as we relentlessly strive to partner, challenge, coach and equip young adults to transform their life trajectories. 

We are not a youth club, and neither do we call ourselves youth workers!

The reality of need for today's inner-city young adult communities and the harmful lifestyles they experience and get caught up in has gone beyond the limitations and unfair dependencies upon such Centre and Club settings and youth work roles.

We are Intervention Coaches, and are so called to ensure that our difference, and the difference we make is best understood by our young adult clients, wider communities, and professionals. Our uniqueness is in our passion, creativity, relationships, and dedication to our cause, together with our hard earned knowledge, experience and model of approach. This specialised area is a highly controversial and contested part of community development, which remains an under funded, often misunderstood, neglected and even avoided element of neighbourhood regeneration.


As we fast approach our remarkable 20th year anniversary as field leaders, our reputation and impacts were recently awarded the Change Leaders Community Safety Award, Finalists of the Third Sector Community Initiative Award, and Winners of the Youth Champion Award.

What makes us different - our USP

Our approach doesn't rely on young people showing up through our doors or depending on courses to 'hook' young people in. Neither do programmes define the length of time we work with our young clients. We go where the most disadvantaged and vulnerable young people spend their time away from education and employment. Relentless and Strategic Outreach and Street Work is what makes all the difference for us, building trust, relationships, intervening in 'real time' and supporting change processes within and outside of our projects until our clients are equipped to self-maintain their transformations.
