Support our movement, challenge yourself or become a partner, there are many ways to get involved to help build bright futures for all young people.
Support the movement
Are you an organisation working with young people? Be part of something bigger – support the movement of organisations working to build bright futures for all young people.
UK Youth initiated a movement of people and organisations to stand with young people and campaign for them to have access to high quality services in every community, regardless of their background or circumstances.
Join the movement of people and organisations working to build bright futures for all young people. We must act now. Invite your peers, colleagues and partners.
Support the movement to give all young people access to high quality services in their community. We must join forces as a collective to make a positive, lasting change for young people.
Our collective efforts to put young people back on the agenda are starting to yield results. Youth work is increasingly being recognised as a solution to some of the biggest challenges society faces.
We need to seize this opportunity. Inequality is increasing between the young and old and among young people. Young people with complex needs and those from disadvantaged backgrounds are hardest hit by these trends. This has led to a rising need for youth services at a time when these services are under an incredible amount of pressure.
Youth workers identify, manage and prevent some of the most pertinent issues of our time, including poor mental health, exploitation, violence against young people and a lack of positive opportunities and progression routes into training and secure employment.
Youth work transforms young people’s lives by developing their emotional and social capabilities, by equipping them with the practical skills they need to learn and earn, and by empowering them to become positive, active members of their community. Youth organisations provide safe spaces for young people. They are a place where young people develop positive relationships and foster a sense of belonging.
Unlocking funding for the sector is vital and will enable us to tackle the pressing issues young people are facing by giving youth workers the skills and tools they need to bring about social change.
