NE Youth

Making a positive difference in the lives of young people

NE Youth is a youth development charity based in Newcastle Upon Tyne proudly serving the North East region. Established in 1935, NE Youth has two main strands; one is delivering daily direct youth work sessions and training where we reach over 4,000 hard to reach disadvantaged young people who are part of an underrepresented community. The second is a membership service where we support over eighty youth organisations with training, development, governance and infrastructure who collectively reach over 59,000 young people.

Our history of practical support for youth clubs and services, and our ongoing work with young people, make up a vibrant blend of activity, support and development that reflects the needs of young people in the North East and makes a positive difference in their lives.

Our aim at NE Youth is that “All young people in the North East of England have the opportunities they deserve to get involved in their communities, enjoy their lives and achieve their potential.” This coincides with our objective “To provide a high quality, diverse and positive youth offer in the North East through our own services and by providing our members with relevant information, advice and support.”

Three core values underpin our youth offer:

  • Involve – young people are involved in communities and positive activities.
  • Enjoy – young people enjoy their lives and the communities where they live.
  • Achieve – young people are prepared for the future and are recognised for their achievements

2020 is an exciting year for us as we celebrate our 85th anniversary. We are looking to significantly grow the services we deliver and increase awareness of the organisation. To achieve this we have devised a whole host of new and exciting challenges and events for our 85th anniversary, check out our website for more information -
