Young People’s Active Involvement

In the Youth Support Team we actively involve young people in the design and delivery of our services, wherever possible.

Young people are at the heart of our services, and are crucial partners in deciding how we deliver them.

What we offer
Opportunities to get involved for young people include:

  • Customer Feedback we regularly survey the young people we work with to find out what they think about the services they receive which helps inform our service design and delivery
  • Mystery Shopping – so that we can ensure our services are accessible to young people we ask young people to assess our staff and centres by becoming mystery shoppers of our services
  • Design and Development of Provision - young people are invited to be involved in the recruitment and selection process of frontline staff
  • Engagement in our Services
    - There are sometimes opportunities for young people to volunteer with us, working alongside staff to give them valuable work experience
    - the Youth Support Team helps deliver UK Youth Parliament and elects 3 Members of Youth Parliament (MYP) to represent the county.

At Gloucestershire Youth Support Team our priority is the safety and well being of the young people we work with and the staff that work so hard to support them.

As the national lock down restrictions are lifting, we are now returning to more face to face delivery, including some group work and events. We will be continuing to deliver virtual contact. Please be assured that we are ensuring that precautions to keep people safe are maintained in all spaces.

We know these are uncertain times and some people are experiencing heightened concerns. If you are worried please speak to your contact within the YST or contact us at

We look forward to seeing you soon.
