Young Somerset is the primary voluntary and community sector youth work organisation in Somerset and our mission is to put young people first.
We deliver a range of services that are aligned to statutory provision and support young peoples’ personal, social, economic, educational development. We are creative and innovative in dynamic ways and collaborate to strengthen our sector’s offer to deliver positive, sustainable outcomes for children, young people, their families, and their communities.
We are agile and of a scale to deliver high quality services across Somerset’s rural areas, urban conurbations, market towns and coastal communities; recognising the uniqueness of the young people we serve and the challenges and opportunities within these places.We have a strong voice locally, regionally, and nationally.
We form strategic relationships with a joint and shared dialogue –using Somerset experience to influence national decision-making which supports and promotes young people and their needs.We listen well to ensure we understand the needs of young people across Somerset –using that evidence and intelligence to translate the national agenda into local practice and delivery.
Our work goes further for young people by inspiring them and collaborating widely for high quality outcomes.
