Crepe Up is a stall that provides young people an opportunity to gain skills in business start-up. Working in conjunction with New Horizon Youth Centre, the Crepe Up stall provides vulnerable, challenged and often homeless young people the opportunity to learn to make and sell crepes.

Crepe Up: Providing Opportunities to Vulnerable Young People

This is only one of the initiatives of the New Horizon Youth Centre, a centre that is open 7 days a week to offer daily support services to vulnerable 16-21 year olds. Young people are forced out of their homes for a number of reasons and many are unable to find shelter or employment. This is addressed by the centre which provides a weekly timetable of workshops including employment and education advice, housing advice and referrals, numeracy, cooking lessons as well as support groups and skills for living.
