About Us

HYPE was setup in 2007 to deliver workshops for teenagers in deprived wards during school holidays. There was an unmet need for this and during the school holidays anti-social behaviour is at its highest.

HYPE’s first workshops supported by Expanding Horizons (Erasmus partners) made a big impact in each community and on the young people that attended them.

After the holiday workshops delivery then took HYPE into community centres, empty shops, primary and secondary schools and in 2016 HYPE started to enhance neglected parks and deliver within parks locally and internationally.

HYPE’s small but effective team of 8 staff, 3 directors and 3 members on the advisory board continue to be innovative and reach more children and young people each year.
