Fusion Y&C UK is part of an international movement with local Fusion teams in 15 countries. Fusion began in 1960 and was Founded by Mal Garvin. It was originally a team of youth workers reaching out to teenagers on the fringes of society and well outside the church. Out of necessity the focus expanded to involve working with the young people’s families and communities, and even advocacy work on a national social policy level. From its beginnings Fusion has always sought to find relevant responses to the needs of young people they worked with, this has resulted in a high value placed on innovation and creativity in connecting, mentoring, and social action.
