Description :

Together, we achieve the best outcomes for young people.



As a new Community Interest Company, Youth Focus South West aims to provide flexible and creative approaches to supporting young people to become resilient individuals with strong coping strategies, able to play an active role in their families, schools and communities.


Youth Focus South West has been established by a group of very experienced youth work professionals with extensive experience across the public and VCSE sectors. In addition to direct work with young people we want to support other organisations to develop really good quality work with young people, based on the values and principles of youth work. We plan to facilitate learning communities in the sector, with training in youth work and issues that impact on young people and networks for organisations and individuals to share their practice and learn from each other. We plan to create an open and honest learning culture across those working with young people in the South West region.





We are in the process of setting up a bank of Youth Workers able to take on sessional Youth Work hours, as and when new projects develop, as well as linking them into opportunities with other organisations. We are seeking both qualified and unqualified workers, with experience of working in a variety of settings, to join us. For further information please email us at
