Epic is a new social enterprise that provides a range of integrated youth support services to children and young people up to the age of 19, or 25 for those with a lifelong learning difficulty and/or disability.
Epic used to be the Youth Support Development Services and were part of the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. We have a long history of providing excellent youth support services to the local community.
Due to the economic crisis there were major cuts to public sector funding and we realised in order to continue providing services we needed to do something different. We spoke to everyone in the company, including young people, about the possible options and everyone was very enthusiastic to get on board and create our own company.
Epic provides a range of services under 4 key themes – Youth, Sport, Health and Ambition. We do this to make sure children and young people have the opportunity to learn new skills, improve and become the best they can so that they have a better change in employment, education and training.
