SUPPORTING, EMPOWERING AND INSPIRING YOUNG PEOPLE

 

Welcome to Berkshire Youth

We are excited about you! And look to help and serve our young people through activities, training, providing opportunities for youth to volunteer and supporting clubs in our area.

Whether you are a young person seeking your voice to be heard; communities wanting to support young people as they reach for their potential as leaders of tomorrow or seeking to support vulnerable young people with their transition from childhood to adolescence; a business looking for ways to support the development  of young people's health and well-being  ..... Berkshire Youth is excited to be working with you.

We work with a range of partners including Parish Councils to ensure the most hard to reach young people are able to access support and services when they need it most.

Berkshire's affluence belies areas of hidden urban and rural deprivation with very low levels of social mobility, where the needs of vulnerable young people are overlooked.

We are focussing our work on those areas most challenged to engage.  The End Child Poverty in January 2018 show that 25% of children in Reading are living in poverty after housing costs, 30% in Slough and 15% in Bracknell and Newbury.  It is in these areas that our targeted work is focussed.
