About Caius House

Caius House is a centre of excellence where the potential inherent in every young person can be unlocked. With our unique team of experienced youth workers, educators, musicians, counsellors, trained dancers and media specialists we are able to support individuals and provide targeted programmes to encourage each young person to develop their individual skills and talents.



About Big Local SW11 Alliance 

The Alliance has been formed by the Big Local SW11 (which is an independent, resident-led group that has been awarded £1m over 10 years to invest in projects that improve opportunities for local people and strengthen our community) to help delivery its own strategy of building a stronger, more self-reliant Battersea.


A partnership of five local long-standing, trusted and passionate organisations (Caius House, Carney’s Community, Katherine Low Settlement, Providence House, St Peter’s Church) we have deep community roots and social relations that span many generations. We are working together, alongside 30+ other local community delivery partners, to rebuild the social fabric of Battersea.


About Battersea Youth Voice

The Alliance plans to establish ‘Battersea Youth Voice’ (BYV): an education, training, mentoring and personal development programme with some of the most disadvantaged young people in Battersea, with the core group coming from the BLSW11 area.

BYV will NOT be a talking shop, youth parliament or debating society! Our ambition is for young people, who may otherwise feel disconnected from their community and society, to engage with and find solutions to issues (like depression and anxiety) by developing projects that connect with the wider community and develop skills useful for future employment and life.


Key Objectives for this role

This is an exciting new developmental role, whose principle purpose is to recruit, engage and co-ordinate a group of local young people with the aim of enabling and empowering them to ensure their voices are heard and bring about change. This may include increasing their levels of confidence, improving their communication skills and improving their ability to self-advocate. We envisage that the young people engaged will develop new projects and services in response to their needs and that of the local community.

Whilst ‘Battersea Youth Voice’ will be open to all young people, the Coordinator’s main role will be to target those young people that have been marginalised, deemed of as ‘hard to reach’ and who rarely have their voices heard.
