C.R.I.B is a ‘not-for-profit’ Christian led organisation based in Birmingham. The purpose of CRIB is to provide a one-stop support service for the young people of Birmingham particularly for those living within the toughest parts of the city.

We provide three main services:

  • CRIB Youth Support Service (for youth aged 16-25)

  • CRIB Smart (for children age 6-15)

  • CRIB Faith (for youth and young adults aged 16-30)

Our services are open to young people of all faiths (and none), all cultures, social backgrounds, ethnicities and nationalities. By joining with other community groups and faith organisations at local level, we are building a community that our young people want to be part of, are proud of and feel connected to.

CRIB was established in March 2014 and is a Community Interest Company (CIC) Ltd by Guarantee. We operate as a “not for profit” organisation and all our work is centred around delivering a free, quality service for the children and young adults of the community.

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. And the second is, ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.”

Our Mission

Our mission is help children & young people DISCOVER, DEVELOP & DELIVER their purpose in life, and to help them reach their full potential.

Our Vision
