Our Core Values
Giving young people access to the resources that can help them to build confidence, find their voice and work in the direction of attaining growth and transformation.
In promoting participation amongst young people, it has benefits for the young person themselves, the youth group and the community as a whole.
Providing young people with diverse informal learning opportunities that stretch horizons, challenge thinking, develop skills and help make informed decisions.
We believe in promoting equality, valuing diversity, and working inclusively, giving every individual the chance to achieve their potential, free from prejudice and discrimination and placing a positive value on those differences.

Burton & Stoke – Why Now?
“Youth work has an important role to play in helping each young person reach their own unique DIZZY HEIGHTS.
It also helps to tackle poverty, reduce inequality, increase levels of educational attainment and employment, improve economic and social well-being, address health and other inequalities and increase young people’s participation in society.”
Youth provision and services are at an all time low. Unfortunately, in times of austerity and cutbacks, youth services are often the first on the chopping block.
This is reflected throughout the United Kingdom as youth centres have closed due to funding cuts and has left a shortage in the skills and expertise of working with vulnerable young people, particularly teenagers. Through no fault of their own, the incredibly hard working youth workers that remain in the sector have been facing a daunting challenge for years. Recently that challenge has become even more difficult as the Coronavirus pandemic left swathes of young people feeling alone and isolated.
Dizzy Heights addresses modern-day challenges that young people face as they make their way through transitional periods in an ever-changing world.
