Welcome to Dorset Youth Association

"Inspiring young people in the community and the community in young people"

Dorset Youth Association aims to improve the quality of life for Children, Young People and their Families in Dorset.

Affecting the lives of approximately 6,000 children and young people each year through our programmes we offer of informal education, positive participation and volunteering which promotes personal and social development. We enable our beneficiaries to reach their full potential and become valued members of society.

At the heart of the Association is a commitment to deliver infrastructure support to voluntary Youth Workers and Clubs across Dorset. On average 60 clubs and groups benefit from a wide range of support including FREE Child Protection and Safeguarding, DBS clearances, First Aid Training as well as Health and Safety Governance.

The Association ensures that equal opportunities are available to all children and young people and that diversity is celebrated.
