Mission and Purpose

Young Advisors are young people typically aged between 15 and 21, who show community leaders and decision makers how to engage young people in community life, local decision making and improving services. Young Advisors are trained agents of social action who guide local authorities, housing associations and other local partners about what it is like for a young person to live, work, learn and play in their neighbourhood.

Young Advisors wants young people to valued in Communities

Our Organisation has young people at its heart

Using the best training, we will support young people, communities and services to work together.

Nationally, we will support and nurture our network of projects. We want for them to be proud to be part of the movement

Great work comes from great workers - we are committed to keeping Young Advisors a creative, fun, supportive and challenging place to work.


First created in 2005 through four initial pilots, the Young Advisors network has grown to give national coverage in England.
