Since we set up in 2008, the team at Ynot Aspire has been successful in working on a variety of projects that provide positive activities and experiences for young people.

Young people are at the heart of our community. We work with lots of local organisations to engage young people and families and link them with other agencies and charities for support in their interaction, well-being and home life/housing.

Examples of past joint working from the team at Ynot Aspire can be viewed on our Case Studies pages – an overview of our successes includes:

  • Supporting Lancashire County Council with their Working Together with Families project.
  • Working with Hyndburn Borough Council to provide one to one support to local homeless youngsters through our volunteers.
  • Providing advice and support to the team at Children’s Social Care to work with those labelled as ‘hard to reach’ young people within the local area.

(We don’t like that label, and there’s much we can do at Ynot Aspire to change this phrase!)

We continually engage with partners through our First Friday Forum meeting which takes place bi-monthly.  Through this meeting we look at where there are gaps in service, collaborative working and joint funding opportunities.  It is a forum to share partner updates so that agencies have a clear idea on who is delivering what services in the area and now incorporates the Youth Homeless Forum for agencies working with young homeless people up to the age of 25.

We have the means and expertise to help partners to consult and engage with young people and can work with you to come up with bespoke projects and events that will assist you in meeting your aims and goals around working with young people.
