Youth Work Week - Llantwit Youth ClubThe Vale Youth Service recently celebrated Youth Work Week in June 2022 and used it as an opportunity to celebrate the positive stories and successes from the last 12 months.


In the Vale of Glamorgan, we have a thriving Youth Service, who support young people across the county from 11-25 years old. There are a wide variety of services that offer this support, from open-access Universal provisions such as youth clubs and after-school clubs, to targeted teams that focus on wellbeing, homelessness and NEETs prevention. The Service works in partnership with internal and external colleagues to offer a high standard of provision that meets the needs of young people across the Vale. 



Youth Work Week - Music ProjectAll staff are professionally qualified and registered with the Education Workforce Council, helping to ensure a quality service is being delivered. A full list of our services can be found on our website or on our social media platforms, through InstagramFacebook and Twitter.


Staff from the service have been recognised through nominations and awards at a variety of levels in the past year for the work that has been done through the pandemic and within the wider youth work sector.

As a team, the Youth Service have also achieved the Bronze Quality Mark for youth work in Wales, showing excellence in quality provision that have then been used as case studies to other youth services across Wales. The Service is currently working towards the Silver Quality Mark, which is due to be assessed in September this year. In addition to this, in July 2021, the Vale Youth Service was awarded the Participation Standards Charter, which illustrates our commitment to children and young people’s participation.


By joining the Youth Service, you can access training and development opportunities and be part of an innovative and exciting youth work team.
