Our mission is:
'To be the champion of young people in Berkshire, furthering their development and education and enriching their lives through leisure time activities to help them grow to full maturity as individuals and members of society and that their conditions of life may be improved.'
We do this by supporting and developing clubs and delivering projects so they can provide the best service for young people in Berkshire and give them the best possible start in life. We ensure that everything we do is sensitive to each local community's agenda so that we can be a trusted advocate for Young People and communities.
