Have You Affiliated with Berkshire Youth?

30 May 2022

Berkshire Youth covers the Royal County of Berkshire and as an independent charity we value the ability we have to respond, support and deliver local work which benefits the young people of Berkshire.

We have a strong tradition of supporting youth clubs and we continue to value what clubs mean for many young people, providing a safe place with positive activities.

We also recognise that this does not meet the needs of all young people, which is why we welcome membership from groups, projects or organisations who value the contribution young people can make to society. This may include:

  • Youth clubs, centres and projects
  • Uniformed groups (Scouts, Guides, Boys/Girls Brigade, etc.)
  • Faith groups offering open access
  • Detached and outreach projects
  • Youth forums
  • Housing Associations
  • Specialist groups
  • Community schools/projects
  • Parish Councils etc

We recognise that many groups will want to affiliate for many reasons but no one service will meet the needs of the diverse communities and groups we serve.

If you are a community group looking to identify a solution to a local need for young people, or you are an existing youth club or project, or you are looking to build on or develop a volunteer scheme, we should be able to supply or develop a solution for you.

Each affiliated member organisation will have their own member of Berkshire Youth staff who can create bespoke solutions to individual needs. This may include:

  • The Sports Leisure and Activities Team, SPLAT
  • Funding support
  • Administration and document/model policies
  • Access to activities for young people
  • A range of training courses and opportunities
  • Access to Disclosure and Barring Services
  • Supporting and recruiting volunteers
  • Duke of Edinburgh Award

If you would like to affiliate to Berkshire Youth or would like more information about affiliating to Berkshire Youth, please email us.
