UK Youth is a leading charity that exists to ensure young people are equipped to thrive and empowered to contribute at every stage of their lives. As an organisation, we make certain that the youth sector is strengthened, supported, and that provision is youth-led and informed by high-quality evidence.

We have extablished ourselves as a leading voice of the youth sector:

  • UK Youth is a leading national charity that exists to support, develop and empower young people and those who support them.
  • The UK Youth Movement is made up of more than 7,000 organisations from across civil society, reaching more than 1.6 million young people in every corner of the country.
  • We run a youth advocacy panel which consists of 30 young people from diverse backgrounds and locations.
  • We run over 50 events a year to support the sector, including themes such as youth loneliness, racial equality and serious violence against young people.
  • We regularly convene leaders from both grass-root organisations and large charities and bodies
  • Last year we accredited more than 2,400 young people through the UK Youth Achievement Awards.
  • As part of our commitment to young people for over 65 years UK Youth has operated our Outdoor Activity Centre at Avon Tyrrell.
  • Overall, through our programmes and initiatives more than 110,000 young people engaged in our delivery. These cover empowerment, financial inclusion, work-readiness, social action, sports, outdoor learning, ensuring young people develop their skills, confidence and self-belief.

UK Youth at Avon Tyrrell

For over a century, UK Youth has been a distinguished charity for young people, supporting them to learn the skills and competencies they need for life.  As part of our commitment to young people for over 65 years UK Youth has operated our Outdoor Activity Centre at Avon Tyrrell. 

Dedicated to the continuous development of young people by providing inclusive outdoor learning, Avon Tyrrell recognises and rewards achievements made outside the classroom and uses its stimulating locality within the New Forest National Park to allow individuals to ‘Experience, Learn and Develop’ giving them the opportunities they need to reach their full potential.

Whether at Avon Tyrrell or via our UK network, UK Youth strives to provide the building blocks for a solid foundation, helping develop personal awareness skills such as; confidence, self-esteem, communication and character building and improving social skills and wellbeing that have a positive social impact and enriches the lives of Young People.
