UK Youth want to give the UK’s younger generation the opportunity to work, volunteer and engage in their communities. Their aim is for all young people to have access to high quality services so they can build bright futures for themselves.
UK Youth supports a national network of local youth organisations throughout the UK. Together with their network they provide support, advice and training to enable young people to gain key life skills.
An estimated 77% of young people that benefit from UK Youth’s support are facing at least one personal barrier. Barriers reported include coming from a low income family, having special educational needs, having mental health issues, being a young carer or not being in employment, education or training. UK Youth strive to help these young people gain the tools they need to overcome their obstacles.
With youth services and young people facing increasing pressures UK Youth’s job has never been more important.
You can show your support and make a difference to young lives by voting for UK Youth in our charity poll. Simply vote on the right hand side of our website to support UK Youth this November!
Our monthly poll really does make a difference to those who need it. Having raised over £50,000 for charities since 2012 it’s easy to see how much your vote counts in helping charities to fundraise and raise awareness for their prospective causes. Plus it’s completely free to take part and cast your vote! Any vouchers used will of course boost the overall amount donation that the winning charity receives, but you do not have to use them to vote! This is a great way for you to show support to the UK’s younger generation.
UK Youth strive to help these young people overcome their obstacles. And now you can help them too...
