At The gap* we exist to engage, identify and invest in the lives of marginalised young people in Sutton Coldfield and surrounding areas. We look to step into the gap between exclusion and acceptance, between apathy and hope. We seek to demonstrate that actions really do speak louder than words.

We want to see young people's lives changed. Read our mission statement here.
We have Super Staff, Terrific Trustees and Valuable Volunteers.
We love working with other charities and organisations in our community.
How do we work?

The gap* is a charity that started life in 2008 and we currently have a small number of paid part-time staff, but we would not be able to do all the work we do without our amazing volunteers that give up their time to support us and the projects we run.

How are we funded?

The gap* is a charity that is supported financially on a regular basis by individuals and local churches. We also apply for external funding in order to resource our projects and the equipment used in the work we undertake.
