A History of Young People First

Young People First is a registered UK charity that began in 1954. Known then as Warwickshire Association of Youth Clubs, the charity offered support to local youth groups in Warwickshire.

Over sixty years later, Young People First is recognised and respected as a specialist, early intervention service which reaches and supports some of our county’s most vulnerable young people.

Employing a team of qualified youth workers, Young People first supports over 400 young people each year through a combination of one-to-one mentoring, small group activities, open access youth clubs and residential experiences.

Our office is at Jubilee House in Leamington Spa and from there, youth workers go out and deliver projects across Warwickshire and Coventry.
