Volunteers Required : YSS

YSS enables people who face significant life challenges to feel safe, have the opportunity to thrive and to realise their potential, and we have been doing so for more than thirty years. There are thousands of people in our communities who struggle with life and face what seem to be insurmountable barriers - they are why we exist.

We provide a wide variety of  mainly community focused support for people and are often described as the ‘glue’ between those at risk of social isolation and the wider mainstream society.

We run a diverse range of services working with all ages but our aim is always the same – to help people to break through barriers (real or perceived) and to achieve their potential.

Our work is rooted in the local communities we serve. We have a strong local presence and a national profile for our innovative work. We strive to  ‘punch above our weight’ to ensure our voice, and the voice of our service users,  is heard and to influence and inform service design and policy.

Established in 1986, YSS is an independent charity supporting some of the most marginalised people in society across West Mercia. We deliver a diverse range of services aimed at helping people break through barriers to achieve their potential.

Volunteers and the ethos and values that volunteering brings to YSS are hugely important to us.

We offer a range of fantastic volunteering opportunities; these include:

  • Mentoring young people and adults involved in the criminal justice system
  • Working with young carers
  • Supporting families
