Our aim is for young people in Warwickshire to have a brighter future. We work with young people aged 11 to 18 years.
We’re a small team of dedicated, professionally qualified youth workers who use our knowledge, skills and experience to build positive relationships with young people.
Good youth work promotes young people’s personal and social development and enables them to have a voice, influence and place in their communities and society as a whole. It builds resilience and character and gives young people the confidence and life skills they need to live, learn, work and achieve. As a service we are keen to support professional and personal development to help our staff deliver effective youth work.
Training and development opportunities are available to our workers at all levels and is consistent with National Youth Agency Curriculum.
