One of the main objectives of The Gap is to be always working alongside and in partnership with other agencies and organisations who engage with local young people.

Over the years The Gap has worked, and continues to work, with a number of local charities and organisations that share a passion for young people in the area. Sutton Coldfield Baptist Church has supported The Gap from the beginning in 2008, and continues to offer their building for The Venue in the town centre on Trinity Hill. We have fostered good relationships with the local Police, Sutton Coldfield Town Council, and other youth-linked organisations.

​We have worked with the young people encouraging involvement in social action projects such as decorating a local charity’s offices, painting walls at the Community Hub, litter picking projects led by the Police and being part of an international social action project in Romania. 

We work with the YMCA in both Sutton Town and Erdington, who have assisted some of the young people that we have been supporting. We have also worked with Clifton Road Youth Centre on various creative and sports-based projects.​ In the past we have partnered with Our Place Support Hub in setting up a drug/drink awareness and activity day at a local outward bound centre. 

We encouraged local sharing of youth-related working by setting up Youth Vision, a quarterly meeting with representatives from youth groups, the Council, Police, churches, the Violence Reduction Unit,

Our Place Support Hub, Early Help and many more.

We are currently partnering with a number of local secondary schools via our Headspace project.
