What do we do?
We meet to identify and find solutions to the issues that affect us and other young people in the area. We then share ideas, opinions, solutions and aspirations with local decision makers. We also plan and deliver social action projects in the local community to help others.

What are our priorities?

  • Promoting opportunities for young people in the Hertford and Ware area
  • Establishing a Youth Strategy Group where young people can meet with organisations which work with young people and shape the services they deliver.

What have we achieved?
We recently made a short film which shares young people’s views on personal safety, gang association, county lines and knife crime. This has informed the professional discussions of decision makers within Safeguarding Hubs across Hertfordshire.

Meeting weekly at Ware Young People’s Centre, we are very welcoming of new members who would like to come along and help improve opportunities for all young people living in Hertford and Ware.

The Ware Young People's Centre is fully wheelchair accessible.
