a Stronger youth sector

Strengthening the youth sector is our second Belong aim.

In 2018, we funded A Place To Belong, research by UK Youth that aimed to find out more about youth workers’ perspectives on loneliness and what could help them do more to identify and tackle it.

Read what we learned on our blog.

Through our work with government on the Building Connections Fund Youth strand, we’ve now partnered with both UK Youth and the National Youth Partnership, led by our Belong partner Youth Focus: North East, to create resources and networks informed by this research.

Check out this blog to find out more about what these teams will do, and why.
