Youth Focus: North East is an award-winning charity based in Gateshead and Middlesbrough that connects young people and the organisations and professionals who support them.

Progressive and dynamic, our work is rooted in the values of youth work. We want young people to have the best from the organisations they access and the professionals who work with them.


We are you

Working alongside young people, Youth Focus: North East has produced a film to raise awareness of youth loneliness and isolation.

The film features a number of scenarios familiar to many of us around themes of feeling different, being judged, struggling to fit in and not always being supported by those close to us.

We hope the film will make people think about issues of loneliness and isolation, start and discussion and perhaps move some people to take action.
