Youth Commission - Who we are and what we do

Share this page

We believe in young people. They are at the heart of everything we do. With the right support and opportunities we can help them to become the best that they can be and fulfill their potential as the adults of the future. These are the key principles that underlie the formation of the Youth Commission for Guernsey and Alderney.

Our Vision

Our vision is a Bailiwick where all young people reach their full potential.

Our Mission

To provide safe, supportive environments where young people can experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, develop skills and build confidence.

Our ambitions

Our aim is to ensure the highest quality provision for young people across our islands. We want to ensure that more young people have access to shape and engage with positive  activities that support their personal and social development. We strive to ensure that youth work is based on evidence and focused on results. We are committed to supporting and training staff and volunteers from all Bailiwick organisations that work with young people, to provide the highest quality services and to ensure that these services are effective and  sustainable. We recognise the importance of the opinions of young people and have set up a Youth Forum to enable us to gather their feedback on what we are doing well (and not so well). This not only helps us to improve our services and meet future needs but also to influence wider social policies.

What are our services?

We are a charity responsible for the delivery and co-ordination of all forms of youth and support work in the Bailiwick. We work with children and young people under the age of 25, although we concentrate particularly on those aged 11-18. Under an innovative partnership with the States of Guernsey, we have contracted to deliver those services previously delivered by their Youth Services team for the period 2013 - 2017. These services are provided in youth clubs, bespoke settings, schools and via outreach, mobile and street based work. However, our services are not restricted to only this arrangement with the States of Guernsey: our ethos is needs-driven and so we aspire to provide gold standard services that make a difference to young people and their futures.

Examples of further services that we provide include:

The Youth Commission will ensure that there is a clear strategic and holistic focus for the non-statutory and statutory services that we provide; providing resources to effectively and efficiently support young people in the Bailiwick. By affiliating many organisations under one entity we can ensure that there is a clear voice for the islands' young people, and a clear voice for those groups working with young people.
