Support for clubs and groups is at the heart of Dorset Youth Association. We are here to provide support to the youth club leaders and supporters, and to provide fun activities direct to the young people.
Support to youth club leaders includes advice and guidance on running a safe and fun youth club, providing skills through training in First Aid, Safeguarding and Health & Safety. We are here to provide help with starting a club, writing a constitution and community engagement, and provide ongoing support through club affiliation.
Young people have enjoyed a range of fun activities. At an available outside space we offer Ultimate Frisbee, slacklining, football, handball and tag rugby. Inside we can offer badminton, indoor cricket or the very popular non-contact boxing.
Once affiliated, our members have access to a dedicated project worker during working hours, with visits to clubs and groups during club opening times. We will also support clubs to achieve a nationally recognised Quality Mark through Ambition, please see below for more details.

Things are constantly changing. Our affiliated clubs and groups are kept informed and supported through any changes which affect the running of their club or group.
