Our purpose is simple – To ensure that every young person, regardless of background or location, has the opportunity to become a member of a uniformed youth group.

Uniformed youth organisations offer young people a plethora of skills and experiences, laying the building blocks for young people to overcome a number of barriers in order to be the best that they can be.

The Foundation’s network works directly with 1.5m young people, aged between 4-24. We are currently working across our Network to support young people, leaders and volunteers through the Covid 19 pandemic.
