Leeds Community Ambassadors Programme

Youth Social Action, at street level, in Leeds.


Since 2014, we have been working alongside our colleagues, Clarion Housing, to support young people on their Sutton Park estate in Halton. We’ve added to our detached youth work presence in the area and now deliver several sessions each week, supporting local young people to improve their community.

The Youth Association is working on a long-term aim to establish a growing culture of participation, influence and volunteerism among young people in Halton. For several years, youth workers having been developing young people into Community Ambassadors, who plan and execute social action projects for the benefit of their own community.
