Reboot Epping Forest Youth Logo.jpg

BY YOUNG PEOPLE, FOR YOUNG PEOPLE

Epping Forest Youth is a collective of drop-in youth centres and other activities  run for the benefit of young people aged 13+ in the Epping Forest District.

At the heart of EFY is a commitment to 'co-design' - working with young people rather than at young people to put together the sessions that they want and need.

EFY is commissioned by Essex County Council Youth Service and coordinated by the Red Balloon Foundation - local authority working hand in hand with the voluntary sector, but both of their efforts shaped by the young people who live in each community the project serves.

Watch this space for updates in the coming weeks. If you live in any of the following areas and would like to be part of the design of the new services for that area, drop us a line at efyouth@rbf.org.uk

The first wave of activities are coming soon in...
