“You’re Hired”

Us UnLtd is a youth led social enterprise involving young people from across Flintshire who have experienced homelessness.  Us UnLtd believe all young homeless people have skills and potential and the company focuses on providing opportunities and support to use these skills for the good of the community and give them the confidence and experience to improve their lives.

CrimeBeat provided funding for Us UnLtd to launch an exercise to attract and, hopefully retain new volunteers for their shop and enterprises. Branded  ‘You’re Hired’, two teams were challenged to design, produce and sell a range of T shirts at the Mold Jubilee celebrations.

The results were positive with over £200 raised for the charity, four recruits staying on with Us UnLtd, positive feedback from partner organisations including the Youth Justice Team and wider positive PR for the young in the Flintshire community.
