The Enthusiasm Trust began in 1992 in response to a need in the Allenton and Osmaston area of Derby. It is a voluntary & community organisation working with young people in deprived communities. Enthusiasm have three core programmes to fully engage and support young people from these local communities who are most at risk of offending and social exclusion. It provides the young people with opportunities to fulfil their true potential: reducing anti-social behaviour and reducing the risk of young people entering into the Criminal justice system.
Young people get involved through agencies, schools and Local Housing Offices. The project continually develops links with local communities and parents and has been recognised both locally and nationally for its success.
Its activities include youth clubs, outreach and workshops for young people tackling issues such as alcohol and teenage pregnancy and intensive one-to-one mentoring to build the skills and confidence of the young people involved.
Derby Homes has provided support through the provision of premises. This combined with a grant from the Single Regeneration Budget, has meant that the project was able to expand and develop and eventually become established as a charity in March 2001.
Derby Homes has been working successfully with the Derby based Enthusiasm Project to help young people on its estates to get work. Derby Homes has also offered work placements to youngsters on the project.
