Our Plans: 2015-2018

Ambitious plans for the youth sector

We have worked hard in challenging times to establish Ambition as a leading voice within the youth sector.

Our new three-year strategy Leading the Way sets out what we’re going to do to ensure organisations working with young people can deliver services of the highest quality, giving young people everywhere the chance of a better future.   

Take a look at some of our recent highlights in our latest success report, Making quality count.

We have four aims from now until June 2018:

Aim 1: We will improve the quality of services for young people across the UK

Raising the standard of young people’s services is a key priority for us. Through our commitment to improving quality, young people will get the best outcomes from local services now and in the future. 

Aim 2: We will invest in our members and partners

Using our knowledge, networks and expertise, we will continue to strengthen our members and partners working in communities across the UK. Through our growing profile and national voice, we will offer funding and resources for our members to deliver locally to even more young people. 

Aim 3: We will listen to young people and meet their needs

Young people’s needs and views will be embedded right across the organisation, actively involving them and our Youth Council in the design, delivery and evaluation of our work. We want to particularly work with those young people who need our help most.  

Aim 4: We will be a leading, ambitious organisation

After 90 years of working in local communities, our heritage is as important as ever. Through increased influence, profile and voice, we will make the case for investing in young people.
