Supporting the NYA

Charitable donations and grants enable us to carry out our vital work to transform the lives of young people.

  • Our programmes directly support disadvantaged young people.
  • Our youth sector workforce development work directly supports youth workers.
  • Our lobbying and championing work directly raises the profile of youth work.

The work we do is extremely important, but it isn’t possible without the necessary funding. We can’t continue this vital work without your support.

There are a number of ways you can help:

Charitable Donations

The NYA is passionate about transforming the lives of young people through the power of youth work.

At the NYA, 83% of our spend goes straight to charitable activities and very little to running costs. That means if you were to donate £10, more than £8 of it would go to directly support young people through youth work.

Support in Kind

We are happy to receive donations in kind as well as monetary donations.

Last year around 7% of our total expenditure was on equipment and professional fees. If we received some of this through support in kind or pro bono work, that is all money that could be spent directly on supporting young people, developing the youth sector workforce, and lobbying for better recognition of the amazing impact that youth work has.

Anything can help, from computers and electrical equipment to venues for events. We are also happy to accept pro bono legal, marketing and accountancy work.

Our offices across the UK are all run by our dedicated staff and we are always in need of furniture, office equipment, printing resources etc.

Business Partnerships

We work collaboratively with businesses and a national network of delivery partners, to design and manage bespoke programmes of support delivered with high quality youth work to positively impact on the lives of young people.

Through our work with major brands and government sponsored projects we have developed collaborative and project management processes that allow brands to have a real impact and return on their investment.

Our supply chain expertise, infrastructure management, processes and experience ensure the best results and maximum reach.

We manage complex contracting and finance arrangements and we are agile and flexible to respond to funder requirements.

National Youth Agency has a UK-wide network of local delivery partners. This gives us a unique position to identify those young people in need, who would most benefit from support.

The NYA’s unique strength is its ability to understand young people, the landscape in which they live and the youth organisations that work to support them.

NYA programmes ensure youth work principles are embedded throughout design, implementation and delivery by:

  • Ensuring young people have access to quality support.
  • Promoting the voice and influence of young people.
  • Providing a wide range of personal and social development opportunities for young people.
  • Working with education providers to encourage young people to achieve their full potential.
  • Promoting intervention and prevention to address disadvantage and social inclusion.
