Huddle verb - definition: to come together to develop strategy, motivate and celebrate.
HUDL started as a 'what next?' project by a group of friends (now directors!) who love to learn, collaborate and co-produce.
We came together because we like to Hudl (huddle) and wanted to challenge organisations to do better in 'how' they engage young people from low socio-economic backgrounds to ensure a lasting positive impact on the young person and wider community.
We want organisations to recognise the value of offering diverse opportunities and experiences to further develop the talent of young people.
We love to co-create, infusing our professional and personal strengths with our wide and varied network to make the work we do impactful, innovative and insightful.
We have supported many organisations across sectors and thousands of young people along the way have benefitted from our programmes.
We're excited to see how we can support you.
Diverse. Creative. Reliable.
