This WFYouth! website was set up in 2012 following consultation with local young people. We consulted with children and young people aged between 7 – 20 and asked them what they wanted from a website which would be dedicated to young people. They wanted one place to visit which provided them with advice and guidance and also a place to look for local youth groups and clubs that they could join.
The site is run by Wakefield Council’s Youth Work Team and the team have been slowly developing the site in accordance with what the young people wanted. Last year we had over 40,000 views on the site 🙂
We know if you are a young person or parent and live in the Wakefield District then this website is for you!
We are continuously developing the website and need more youth groups and clubs to contribute to the site. If you run a youth group (sports club / music group / dance troupe / support group) etc. etc. then please get in touch.
What you get….
You get FREE advertising for your group. This can help with recruiting new members and showcasing what you do.
What we get…
It is our statutory duty to provide a place to advertise the offer of activities available for young people in the district. Without you we couldn’t do this.
