XLP (The eXceL Project) is a registered charity at the cutting edge of urban youth work in the UK. It was started by Patrick Regan in Peckham, South London, in 1996 after a stabbing in a school playground. They needed someone to speak to the kids and address the issues they were facing. Patrick, a local youth worker, answered the call. XLP now serves young people in schools and communities across seven inner-London boroughs (Southwark, Lewisham, Greenwich, Newham, Tower Hamlets, Camden and Islington). xlp.org.uk
The Eden Network co-ordinates groups of Christians who share a passion to be participators in what God is doing in some of Britain’s most disadvantaged communities. The work originated in Greater Manchester in 1997 and has grown steadily with Eden teams now actively involved in 20 neighbourhoods across 6 cities including Manchester, Salford, Newcastle, Bradford, Sheffield and London. Eden’s model has been widely celebrated for the transformational impact it brings to the most hard-to-reach members of society – particularly to youth and young families. eden-network.org
