The Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs of Wales is a national voluntary youth work organisation that supports young people in Wales to fulfil their potential. Due to the current economic environment and in particular the pandemic, young people are struggling with their mental health and are having difficulty finding employment. Services are being cut by local authorities which is impacting disadvantaged young people who are becoming even more disadvantaged. The organisation's aim is to support young people and their changing needs in these tough times through providing them with a safe place to go to, and by providing training and projects that will enable them to fulfil their potential and to access life changing opportunities.
The Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs of Wales participated in the Pilotlight Programme. For stories from the programme take a look at the case studies.
