The NYA is the leading national charity for youth work and was created in 1964 to act as the national body for the youth work profession. Since 2010 the NYA has received no state funding to support our sector development work.
The NYA is passionate about transforming the lives of young people through the power of youth work.
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.
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.
