Mission Statement

Our goal is to provide a safe and cared for environment in which ALL young people of the area can access positive experiences to enrich and capacitate their successful transition from child to adulthood.

We work hard to offer opportunities and guidance that will enhance and structure young people’s education, training, employment needs and social lives so that they are better equipped to take an active role in all aspects of their community.

We empower young people and provide opportunities, we enhance life chances and we have created positive effects in the community, showing and promoting young people in a positive way and encouraging society to accept young people in the way we all hope to be accepted.

We deliver a constant and well managed service for young people aged between 7 to 25 years old. YPM believes in 'Inspiring young people to achieve' we exist to support young people’s development, offering opportunities to gain, increase and develop skills, knowledge self-awareness and confidence, and enabling them to make positive and healthy life choices.

We are a young people’s service we do not generate an income from our business. We are a non-profit making organisation, not a money-making industry solely concerned with financial growth. Although we need our organisation to grow and develop this will only be made a priority in order to gain a determined sustainability and to ensure our future presence is assured through our wide range of programmes aimed at different age groups of children from all backgrounds.
