Wakefield Youth Work Team

Wakefield Council’s Youth Services comprises of the Wakefield Youth Work Team and the Wakefield Youth Offending Team.
The Youth Work Team are based at Crofton Young People’s Centre in the heart of Crofton, Wakefield.
We work with and for young people to fully prepare them for adulthood, and to help equip them with the personal and social skills to be valued and engaged as citizens, capable of making positive choices and accessing opportunities.
We do this through coordinating and delivering a programme of high quality youth work which includes:
A programme of street based detached youth work where young people are identified as being involved in risky behaviours.
A targeted group work programme for young people experiencing difficulties or vulnerabilities.
National youth work programmes, such as the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, UK Youth Parliament, and British Youth Council.
Support to the voluntary community sector to increase youth work capacity and the quality of provision available to young people in Wakefield.
Activity to ensure a comprehensive offer of positive youth activities is available to young people across the district, and that they are aware of it.
