UK Youth is the largest national body for the youth sector, who via our member networks and partners, deliver a wide range of informal educational opportunities for young people aged 9-25 years, living in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Our aim is for every young person we work with to be a positive force for change in their own life, and the lives of others. We recognise that to do this young people need to develop crucial life skills that are not always acquired at home or through formal education. To find out more about our recent work and successes please read our Annual Review for 2014/15.
UK Youth has supported and welcomes current conversations between Ambition and NCVYS regarding their potential merger.
