With a history spanning over 70 years, Oxfordshire Youth supports the youth sector across the county, working with grassroots leaders; it delivers innovative youth leadership programmes; and it provides a transformational supported accommodation service for young people. In everything it does, Oxfordshire Youth aims to meet the needs and aspirations of young people. All the charity’s work is grounded in best practice safeguarding and youth work principles and practice.
Young people need access to safe spaces and trusting relationships, where they can be themselves, make friends, develop new skills and make positive changes to their lives and their communities.
Throughout history, youth organisations have provided vital opportunities for young people to express themselves freely, build confidence, strengthen their talents, develop new skills and raise aspirations.
We believe that informal education, youth work & non-formal learning is essential to improving young people’s quality of life.
