With a history spanning over a century, UK Youth is a leading national charity committed to ensuring all young people are empowered to build bright futures, regardless of their background or circumstances.
It’s our mission to provide all young people with access to appropriate, high quality services in their local community or online.
We sit at the heart of a national network of members, brought together through our merger with Ambition, to support an estimated four million young people across the UK. Together with our network, we offer support, advice and training to equip young people with the vital life skills needed to engage in education, volunteering and employment.
We work with young people across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland through our Nation Partners: Youth Scotland, Youth Cymru and Youth Action Northern Ireland. The majority of the young people we work with are aged 8-24, primarily from disadvantaged backgrounds.
Around a quarter of our members work with young people in isolated rural or coastal areas. These areas typically have lower social mobility for disadvantaged young people with some isolated areas having no school sixth forms, fewer specialist teachers along with limited higher education options and outreach for employers.
