Youthfocus NW is a regional charity working with 23 Local Authority areas in the North West.

With youth work values at the heart of our work, we are passionate about youth participation and the engagement of young people in society. We co-ordinate UKYP in the North West on behalf of the British Youth Council and run our own unique regional youth forum called Youthforia. We also currently co-ordinate the Youth Senate for Cheshire West and Chester and are experienced in meeting targets and delivering outputs. In order to improve the lives of young people we work with LA and voluntary and community groups such as The Proud Trust and offer training to youth workers on a variety of issues. Our staff have over 70 years’ experience, 2 of which are experienced youth workers. We offer the following services to Local Authority and organisations:

  • Information and intelligence – weekly strategic bulletin
  • Professional support – eg facilitation
  • Research, including Peer Research
  • Consultancy and project management
  • Brokerage and Networking
  • Project management – reporting against milestones
