EVENTS

We love hosting youth events, with the biggest of the year being our end of year celebration – of course this has been missing during the pandemic but we can’t wait to make it bigger and better in 2022.

Are you looking to sponsor one of our youth events? Sponsoring an event is a fantastic opportunity to provide us with the vital funding and support which means we can continue supporting hundreds of young people across Shropshire.

You can keep up to date with our youth events programme by signing up to our newsletter.

Supporting voluntary clubs

Do you run a youth club and feel that you’re lacking equipment or support?

SYA can provide you with a range of equipment and the appropriate support to help you ensure that your club is offering the best possible activities for young people. Our passionate team will visit your youth club and give you a helping hand with activities, bring your chosen equipment with them and run specialist activities for young people alongside your own volunteers. We know you can never have too many pairs of hands at a youth club!

You can find more information on hiring equipment here.
