More about the 4TIFY Programme

In the dictionary, to fortify, means to strengthen something. Its synonyms include to secure, surround and protect. This is the approach that our 4TIFY programme takes. 4TIFY is a youth-led membership programme which increases the safety and resilience of young people (aged 13 - 25) from Grahame Park Estate. We deliver several strands of activity including:

  • Intensive 1:1 mentoring support (in the community, police station /custody and educational settings, including pupil referral units)

  • Group workshops

  • A drop-in service

  • A boxing club

  • Community outreach

 

After the success of the 4TIFY pilot programme, we are now in the process of expanding the service to include: 

  • Creative projects

    • Daily music studio access

    • Creative industry masterclasses

    • Accredited courses 

  • A legal clinic

  • A breakfast/dinner club
