By: Brendan Manning This past week I had the pleasure of viewing & Juliet, a musical in the West End featuring the music of Max Martin (the Swedish pop songwriter / producer behind some of the greatest 90s and 2000s songs).

One of You Press' June highlights was having the opportunity to work with Renaisi, on the Theory of Change workshop.
During the workshop our team and some past project participants were able to reflect on our methodology for planning, participation and evaluating how You Press creates social change.
Thank you to Mylene Pacot, the principal – Strategy & Impact for leading the workshop and Paul Hamlyn Foundation for the consultancy support. We are grateful to have gained valuable insight that will help our organisation going forward!

IT’S NEWHAM HERTIAGE MONTH 🤩 @newhamheritagemonth
We are beyond excited that in the month of June our local area, Newham, is being celebrated for its excellence.
Our social enterprise began in this very borough 10 years ago and after migrating elsewhere for a few years, this year we finally returned back to our first base! 😊
You Press love Newham for its picturesque views (as seen in the pictures above), community feel and ultimately for its people.
Our social enterprise is incredibly passionate about helping build up the youth and different communities that reside in Newham.
We cannot wait to offer more to this borough through our programmes and projects - so please stay engaged with us and our future endeavours in Newham!
