Improving young people’s emotional well-being
Our members work with over 3,500 local youth clubs across the UK. Our members are umbrella youth organisations in cities and counties and countries throughout the UK. We support them to provide the best possible services and opportunities for young people.
Our office in London coordinates our work, influences government and other key decision-makers to make the right choices for youth clubs, and develops crucial resources.
Involving young people in how we work is really important to us. 60 young people from our membership came to our Say Something event to tell us what they thought about our work, how we are run and what our plans should be. They helped shape our new three-year strategy.
We monitor our impact closely, so we can show our supporters, funders and donors that investing in us makes a difference to young people. We also like to know what we’re doing well – and what isn’t working, so we can improve.
In fact, we recently invested in a new system to monitor our impact, called VIEWS. This will help us and our members collect evidence of our good work.
