Youth Clubs & Communities We work with young people across Somerset to combat issues within their communities in a variety of ways: Working with communities to establish and run successful youth clubs Giving young people a voice within communities Promoting community engagement Building relationships between young people and local agencies Working to reduce anti-social behaviour "It would have been quite a different experience for us (overwhelming and very challenging!) to set up a youth club without the support of the Young Somerset team. Their enthusiasm and energy is inspirational! The wealth of knowledge, experience, advice and support available from YS has made starting up a YC an enjoyable experience for us." - Andrea of Lower Lakes YC, Chilton Trinity We have a range of youth clubs across Somerset for young people to come along to and get involved with.
