Our History


Onwards and Upwards

In order to keep up with our ever-expanding projects, we're moving our Middlesbrough Office from Pallister Park Centre, Ormesby Road to Brambles Farm Centre, Marshall Avenue. This exciting move gives us additional space to provide even more high quality youth work, and allows us to further grow our training centre in order to strengthen and support youth work around the North East.

Youth Work Training

Continuing with and building on our successful work teaching the National Youth Agency bursary-funded Level 2 Award in Youth Work Principles, Youth Focus North East are establishing a training centre to deliver Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications in youth work.
This work will be important to helping to rebuild youth services in our region, enabling youth workers to gain professional qualifications.
