The Crib

Janette Collins set up the Crib ten years ago in Hoxton. They are a youth organization working across Hackney in Homerton, Stoke Newington, De-Beauvoir and London Fields.  Activities include helping young people set up social enterprises around fashion design and catering and mentoring young people to aspire for more.  The Crib work closely with the met police delivering workshops called ‘Trading Places ‘, exploring the issues around stop and search laws.

It is part funded through HCVS’s Inspiring Young Hackney project to improve employment and training opportunities for local young people. The Crib is also funded through Team Hackney PAYP- Positive Activities for Young People.



ReachOut! creates, develops and supports dynamic mentoring relationships and community partnerships so as to inspire young people aged 8 and over to learn new skills, broaden their horizons, aim high and be the best they can be.
