Welcome to Streets of Growth

Strategic Outreach for Lasting Impact: Transforming Lives Through Targeted Intervention

We are a dynamic grassroots charity with a pioneering approach for re-engaging young adults aged 15-25 to reduce harm and transform their lives through developing safer lifestyles and lived environments, and maintaining education and career progression.


Established in 2001, Streets of Growth was born out of our own lived experiences of growing up and navigating the streets and council estate realities in east London. We are a multiculturally diverse team of Intervention Coaches and Entrepreneurs, some of whom were once young recipients of these incredible services ourselves.


Our innovative team coach and support young adults over the longer term and will journey with you until you can maintain progression independently of us. This is what we do and why we have a multi-award winning reputation and track record for doing!

What We Do

Our Appropriate Intervention Bridging Model: Long-Term Support for Transformative Change

Our approach is called The Appropriate Intervention Bridging Model™. This is because we seamlessly interweave outreach and targeted intervention with stage-based programmes in Lifestyle, Environment, Education and Career progression. A vital component of our transformative system is how we support our young clients to address relapse throughout their transitional journey of change with us. We are not a ‘one chance’ quick fix programme, and we don’t wait for young adults to walk through our doors to engage or reengage them. We work with our clients between one month and three years in what we call a ‘relationship for change’ building trust, safety, shared vision, joint action and sustained progression.

Tailored Pathways to Success

Dynamic Stage-Based Programmes

Our Stage-Based Programmes are created in response to the readiness, needs and interests of the young people and communities we work with. They are always evolving and expanding to transform the lifestyles and environments of our clients, and create progressive routes into education or employment. 


During the lifetime of our organisation, we have run a diverse range of programmes including Fashion and Textiles, Music, Podcasting, Construction, Furniture Upcycling, Bicycle Recycling, Film and more. Our current programmes run at our intervention and creative industries centre in Aldgate East and at our partnering community centres and schools across Tower Hamlets.

What our young people say

“My intervention coach really listened and took the time to learn about my life and situation. I now realise the friendships I was in were not good and I was being used and exploited. The Cognitive Behavioural Skills coaching enabled me to see that I have choices, which led to starting a new career and joining the young influencers programme to support other young people.”
