Our mission, what we can offer
Youth Focus North West is an organisation with strong youth work roots. We work in partnership with organisations and young people to have a voice where it counts across the North West and beyond.
A team of professional youth workers we create networks, broker partnerships and open up opportunities for young people and organisations to work together to improve lives and have a voice.
Our youth voice work gives young people opportunities to make a difference locally, regionally and nationally.
We believe that working with young people and engaging them in civic life contributes to improving the lives of young people in the North West.
Our work naturally splits into 2 areas:
We directly deliver youth voice activities (Youthforia, GMYCA, LCRYA & Children in Care Council Network) and we support services wanting to engage young people.
We develop the craft of youth work by providing advice, guidance and training. We manage and broker relationships and networks that influence and impact on policy and practice.
