The role and value of youth organisations in strengthening communities
This report draws on research carried out with ten youth organisations who are all members of London Youth. We sought to reflect a range of different provision within the research. Organisations were drawn from across London and varied in terms of the type of services they offer, and young people they support. Some have a mission focused solely on young people (although as we found out, they often work with parents, carers and other stakeholders in the community); others are much broader in their focus, and are not solely ‘youth organisations’, but work with young people as one of a number of groups of individuals.
