  • Mission statement

    Our fundamental commitment is to improve the life opportunities of children and young people through high quality, vibrant and dynamic programmes, which motivate, support and enable them to choose a happy, healthy and positive future.

    At Youth Options, we support young people through a diverse programme tailored to the setting, needs and age of the individual. The difficulties faced by these vulnerable young people vary, but include risk of educational or social exclusion, challenging behaviour, chaotic home lives, criminal behaviour, low self-esteem, poor educational achievement and low aspirations.

    We believe passionately that every child and young person should have the opportunity to realise their potential whatever their life circumstances.
