”We have had the opportunity to work with a number of the Urban Devotion staff over recent years. They are a pleasure to work with as they will always ‘go the extra mile’ for those they support and assist. For Urban Devotion working in partnership – such as the WNF partnership to deliver support to the unemployed in the Erdington Constituency - has a real meaning rather than simply playing lip-service for their own ends. They are passionate about their work and have real respect and empathy for those they work alongside.
We look and hope for a long working relationship well into the future for our organisations’ sake and that of those who lives we seek to make a difference through their own development, formation and advancement”
Judy Tullett, Business Strategic Development Manager

"Urban Devotion provide an opportunity to engage young people who socialise on the streets and are therefore at risk. This, along with other facilities they provide, means that they are an effective partner in preventing crime and anti-social behaviour. I have found the team to be pro-active and enthusiastic"
PC Paul Emms, West Midlands Police
"I have worked with Urban Devotion for a number of years now and can honestly say that they have made a real difference to how Perry Common feels. The team are very enthusiastic and committed and there has been a noticeable change for the better in the attitude of the young people that they work with”
Linda Hines MBE, Witton Lodge Community Association

Jo Weir, Head of Religious Education, Kingsbury School & Sports College
"I think Urban Devotion is a good charity because it helps the youth round here. It helps us get off the streets, takes us on trips sometimes. It helps us with work experience, it helps us find work if we need any. It just helps in general, it helps a lot. It's what a charity is meant to do"
