Focus on Youth Charities – Streetspace
We’re continuing to celebrate the UN’s International Youth Day this week by highlighting our newly launched Somerset Youth Fund. The mission of the Fund is to support innovative and effective solutions to issues faced by the most disadvantaged young people in Somerset today and to raise the aspirations and life opportunities of these young people.
Streetspace, which is based in Chard, is an example of one of the charities in the county that the Somerset Youth Fund aims to support. They offer detached youth work and a counselling service for young people in crisis and have received three grants from Somerset Community Foundation in the past.
You can find out more about the work that Streetspace do here.
