About Us

Young People's Futures (YPF) works with children and young people aged 5-18 years. Our current database information indicates that from April 2009 to date we have engaged with 1158 children and young people across 6 communities in the North area of Glasgow.

YPF has regular contact with 300 young people on a weekly basis. Through building positive relationships and trust with our service users and having regular contact we have identified the level of need within the project. Children and young people are living within households that have addiction problems, mental health and physical health problems as well as having a low income within the household. Through bringing young people together from many different communities we are working towards breaking down territorial barriers that can also be disadvantageous to them.

Service users who access the programme have diverse needs and our staff team work towards ensuring that all young people are included in the service without prejudice.

Lack of opportunity and facilities is a major disadvantage within these areas for not only young people but the wider community.

Young people are not given opportunity to have a voice in the development of their areas and are not listened to; their creativity and aspirations are often over-looked.
