The Youth Projects Team

If you require legal, advocacy support click here.

A crucial component of our holistic model is that our support doesn’t stop when our advocacy and legal teams have helped young people stabilise their lives. Recognising that young people in difficulty face significant barriers to personal development, we seek to remove those barriers and support them in accessing education, training and employment. This empowers each young person to become independent, confident and able to reach their full potential.

The Youth Projects Team

What do we do?

Together, The Youth Projects Team works with young people aged 14-24 through regular one-to-ones, group work and online meetings. We support young people to achieve their full potential by addressing and removing barriers that they may face in their lives. 

The Youth Projects Team mostly work with young people who have accessed our legal and advocacy services. Our support does not stop when our advocacy and legal teams have helped young people stabilise their lives.

We do this by offering opportunities such as:

  •  Consultations with young people 
  •  Focus Groups on various topics that insight change
  • Inviting young people to attend events and actively participate 
  • Include young people in the interview stage for potential employees
  • Encouraging ex-clients to be part of our trustee board
  • Creative mechanisms including podcast 
  • Participating on in-house and external work experience placements

We also promote and support the involvement with self, external or internally assisted social action projects.
As a team within Just for Kids Law we ensure and promote a youth centred approach to our work that champions young people involvement and active participation throughout the work we do.
