Poetic Unity

Poetic Unity is a Brixton based charity that provides support and services for young people across the UK. Our vision is to give young people a voice and to empower them to reach their highest potential. We use poetry as a tool to support young people’s mental health, education, personal development, physical health, and community cohesion.

Founded in 2015, we deliver hundreds of programmes and events every year for the community. Our team has over 10 years’ experience of working with young offenders, marginalised young people, and children at risk. We have seen that creativity is an important tool to assist the next generation and we give young people the opportunity to express themselves and learn in a safe and friendly environment. In the short time we have existed we have supported thousands of young people from Brixton to the world, and we will continue to serve the community for generations to come.

We all want to make it.
Make it in our chosen career. Maybe make it big.

Sometimes perhaps just make it to pay day.
But whatever our ambition, what unites us all is the desire to thrive, be recognised – and be supported.
And that’s what Lambeth’s Creative Enterprise Zone is all about. Supporting creative people to do amazing creative things without having to leave our amazingly creative corner of south London.
Because we all want to make it – of course – but more than that, we want to Make It in Brixton.
