WHAT WE DO
At the heart of youth work is the relationship which develops between the youth worker and young person
We believe that all young people deserve the best start to life, which is why we try our best to ensure that every child and young person is provided with the best possible opportunities and experiences when they join us at SYA.
We feel there are too many young people who don’t have access to suitable youth provision, so we make sure that we offer age-appropriate facilities, such as nearby youth groups or clubs, and that they have sufficient support from us.
SYA supports a number of youth clubs, groups and organisations across Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin, providing children and young people with life changing opportunities. We have a mission to provide Shropshire’s young people with a chance – to discover their confidence, make friends and create fond memories.Find a Club

As a charitable organisation, we can only operate through the support of Shropshire businesses, individuals and organisations across the county. Many of our projects and equipment are available thanks to the dedication and kindness of those who have donated to us. It’s these donations that keep us providing fantastic youth support to the young people of Shropshire.
