With an open network of over 8000 youth organisations and nation partners, we are focused on unlocking youth work as the catalyst of change that is needed now more than ever.
For many young people their youth worker is the only person they openly talk to, and their youth organisation is the only safe space they have to be heard and to explore their character on their own terms.
Once you have genuine belief in yourself, it changes everything”Young person from a UK Youth programme
The largest national youth work organisation in Scotland, supporting 66,000 young people, 1,450 youth groups and over 8,200 youth workers. Youth Scotland has been around since the early 20th century and has a diverse membership network – from small rural youth groups to large urban projects. The common goal that we all share is better outcomes for young people.
Youth Cymru is a major youth work charity operating within the whole of Wales.
Until June 7th 2003 we were known as the Welsh Association of Youth Clubs (WAYC).
The WAYC can trace its history back to the Cardiff and District Federation of Girls Clubs, which was formed in 1934. This means that Youth Cymru has been serving the needs of young people in Wales for over 83 years.
