Northumberland Youth Service

The statutory youth service works with young people aged 13 – 19 and up to 25 years for those with additional needs.

Youth work offers young people opportunities of various kinds in their leisure time that complement those they have in their home life, school, college and work.

About the youth service

Youth work aims to help young people discover and develop their personal resources of body, mind and spirit to better equip them to live a creative and responsible life as part of a free society.
 
Activities are designed around you so that they are often challenging, usually a learning experience but always enjoyable.
 
We provide these opportunities outside of normal school hours in your spare time. Northumberland is a big county so we have divided the youth service into three areas.
 
We also provide the National Citizen Service for 16 and 17 year olds, for more information on NCS and how to sign up, visit our pages here.

#ItCouldHappenToMe campaign

Northumberland Youth Service have generated a campaign aimed at young people to help raise awareness, improve knowledge and give greater understanding of Child Sexual Exploitation. Developed as a partnership throughout Northumberland County Council, the #ItCouldHappenToMe campaign has been developed to include; posters, wallet cards, wristbands, leaflets and online resources, all providing information about recognising child exploitation and what to do if you think it is happening to you or someone you know.

The campaign has been developed by a group of young people, aimed at young people, to help them understand that child exploitation can happen to anyone with tools to help recognise the difference between a healthy or unhealthy relationship along with providing information about what to do if you need further advice or help.
