All our work is underpinned by a commitment to working safely, effectively and sustainably to achieve positive outcomes for all young people.
Young people face a wide range of challenges whilst growing up, some of these are clearly visible; others are harder to spot. Through accessing good youth work provision and the many positive benefits this provides, we know that young people stand a better chance of growing up happy, successful, independent & involved, are resilient enough to cope and have the right skills for life.
We know that good youth work helps
young people achieve their true potential
“To help and educate young people especially, but not exclusively, through their leisure time activities so to develop their mental, physical and spiritual capacities that they may grow to full maturity as members of society, that their condition of life may be improved” (Extract from Youth Clubs Hampshire and Isle of Wight’s Constitution)
