5UP CIC was formed in January 2020 at 13 Raleigh Industrial Estate, Camp Lane, Handsworth, Birmingham, B21 8JF, as a community interest company (CIC). 5UP CIC’s company registration number is 12405631. It is a special type of limited company which exists to benefit the community rather than its private shareholders.
The funds will be used for the benefit of the social objectives rather than for the individual shareholders.
Our activities will be available for all members of the public to access with a focus on in particular children and young people of all ethnicities from disadvantaged backgrounds that may be at risk from gang involvement and knife crime, and children and young people with additional needs.
We will benefit and work with schools, colleges, further education, and social services through our work with children and young people who are not in mainstream education.
The company will benefit those living in inner-city Birmingham as well as the wider West Midlands.
We were set up to provide a Thai Boxing, Boxing, MMA and physical fitness gym for all members of the community. Through these services, we will also engage children and young people and offer additional support including:
Mentoring and coaching and relationship building, providing support and advice through appropriate role models and mentors.
We will give members of the public an opportunity to improve their wellbeing through physical exercise and learn a form of self- defence with highly experienced mentors and coaches.
Employment support, job search support, writing CV’s and supporting people into employment locally.
