The impact of Young Somerset's work:

Through participation in Young Somerset programmes, young people complete self-assessment evaluation tools, measuring different aspects of their development.  138 young people took part in the assessment between Sep19 - Jan 20.  Through engagement with YS, young people articulated:

  • 86% enjoyed Young Somerset a great deal
  • 81% felt respected a great deal
  • 84% trusted Young Somerset staff a great deal 
  • 97% said they enjoyed the activities and have a safe place to go
  • 88% they get to meet new people
  • 86% said they got the support they needed

In the past 3 years (2017-2020) Young Somerset have:

  • engaged with 4641 young people through our Youth Work
  • accepted 438 referrals made to Young Somerset's Wellbeing Service

Young Somerset worked with young people from 30 different schools or colleges, and from 27 different community settings across Somerset.
