Formerly Northumberland Boys Clubs/Clubs for Young People, NE Youth is the North East’s leading youth development charity supporting young people and youth organisations – in the communities where they live and work. Our history of practical support for youth clubs and services, and our ongoing work with young people, make up a vibrant blend of activity, support and development that reflects the needs of young people in the North East and makes a positive difference in their lives.

For organisations working with children and young people, NE Youth offers a range of services to help strengthen and support your offer for young people in the North East.

For young people, NE Youth provides opportunities to engage in a diverse range of activities and programmes that enable them to be involved, enjoy, and achieve.



Our vision is:

“All young people in the North East of England have the opportunities they deserve to get involved in their communities, enjoy their lives and achieve their potential.”



The central purpose and role of NE Youth is defined as:

“To provide a high quality, diverse and positive youth offer in the North East through our own services and by providing our members with relevant information, advice and support.” 



Three core values underpin our youth offer:

  1. Involve – young people are involved in communities and positive activities.
  2. Enjoy – young people enjoy their lives and the communities where they live.
  3. Achieve – young people are prepared for the future and are recognised for their achievements.
