Our Purpose, Vision and Values

We work collaboratively with our members and other youth facing organisation to provide unique, innovative and life-changing opportunities, projects and programmes, bettering the lives of young people in Wales.

Young people in Wales are confident and strong, empowered to fulfill their potential and to contribute to building the Wales we want.

We want to bring about positive change for young people in Wales through our Grass Roots Values and strategic influence.

We believe that young people are citizens and rights holders. All our work is underpinned by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child, in line with the Rights of Children and Young Person’s Measure (Wales) 2011.

We believe that youth work changes lives. We are committed to equality and inclusion; we challenge prejudice and discrimination.We believe that youth work has a vital role to play in building the Wales we want. We shape our work to contribute to the seven Well-being Goals set out in the Well-being of Future Generations

Young people are unique and those individual differences are of great value, are to be respected, and central to all that we do.

Young people have the right to an equal opportunity to make the most of their lives, talents, and strengths.

Young people are creative partners in our vision and work.

Young people have different needs, identifying solutions and responding personally at a pace that respects their individuality, is essential.

Opportunities enable authentic creativity and growth. They are essential to learning, vital for developing self-expression, self-confidence, and problem solving.

Young people have the potential to achieve great things and to live fulfilling, meaningful, and positive lives.
