“We believe in a world where every young person has a good quality of life with equal access to creative opportunities and a community of support”
Pie offers a safe space for young people in Thanet and Dover to access life-enhancing opportunities, through youth work, music and arts projects, pastoral care and counselling.
Our innovative free programmes, activities, and events support, encourage and empower under-25s to influence their own lives positively. We help them to learn skills, build confidence, be themselves and connect with others.
Everything we do is focused on creating opportunities that lead to progression, employment, and better life chances, especially for those facing challenging life circumstances, so that no young person is left behind and everyone has their voice heard.
Supporting the emotional, physical and social wellbeing is our utmost priority. Young people come first and foremost – we include them in our plans and decisions at every level, responding to their needs.
We have a passionate and committed expert team and we constantly respond to the needs of young people, striving for social justice and inclusion for everyone.
Our 20 years of experience and partnership enables us to specialise in working with young people from challenging circumstances such as those in care, young people with disabilities and those who face emotional and social difficulties.

Our much-loved and long-standing youth worker, Jamie Ferguson, sadly passed away in summer 2022. A parent of one of the young people in Jamie’s sessions put this huge loss into words beautifully “Jamie was a wonderful person, he will be sadly missed. He touched our lives with the care and support he gave us even when times were hard”. The Pie family misses Jamie hugely and will find ways to pay tribute and honour Jamie, and the impact he made to our Pie family, always. We are so grateful to everyone who has donated to us in his honour - it means so much. If you need support processing this loss, please reach out to us - we’re here for you.
