Youth Focus North East
Improving the lives of young people
Youth Focus North East is an independent charity with the overall vision to improve the lives of young people through high quality youth work. We exist for the benefit of young people and the organisations which support them. Working together, we invest in the lives of young people, to create lasting change in their own lives and the communities in which they live. Our organisation is rooted in the values of good youth work...
Honesty – Respect – Equality – Inclusion
We pride ourselves on being a caring and learning organisation. One in which people are encouraged to take risks, learn from mistakes and achievement, and where young people are central to all we do.
At the core of our work is a number of direct delivery programmes aimed at addressing young people’s issues. We support a network of over 340 organisations and individuals providing information, support and professional development.
