Young Gloucestershire (YG) is a countywide charity that supports disadvantaged young people (aged 11-25) who are facing challenges in their lives.

YG supports young people who are facing some very difficult times; whether it be a disruptive home life, caring for a family member or coping with a mental health issue. Young people turn to us for help and we offer them practical ways to find confidence and develop the skills they need to get on track and to move into a job, education or training.

YG’s vision is for young people to have the confidence motivation and skills to improve their lives. We work to achieve this vision by creating opportunities that educate, inform and inspire.
