Our approach to being more inclusive

GMYN aims to create an inclusive welcoming environment for young people and all those who work or volunteer at GMYN or wish to join #TeamGMYN. Whilst our staff are diverse in many ways, we recognise we are not currently representative of the communities that we serve, and we want to change this. We therefore welcome and encourage applications from people from BAME backgrounds and people who identity as having additional needs or disabilities.

Hello this is a blockquote

This is another block of text

Hassan, 23, went into care aged 4. His mum has drug issues and he now lives with his dad and two of his half brothers. His brothers are involved with knife crime, drug dealing and gang violence and they steal from him to pay off debts. Hassan does not feel safe at home.

Hassan has a learning difficulty. At school, he stole cars, got into fights and robbed houses to fit in. He was excluded and did not finish school.

Over the past year, one of his friends was stabbed to death outside his local mosque and another took his own life. Both were under the age of 25.

Since joining GMYN, Hassan is determined to turn other young people away from crime. He writes raps, expressing his struggles for other young people. He also volunteers; takes part in peer-mentoring courses; and is now a GMYN Ambassador, helping to change the lives of other care experienced young people in Greater Manchester.

“GMYN has turned my life around. If it weren’t for them, I don’t know where I would be right now – they are like my family.”
