Young Lives provides universal support services to children, young people, families and the voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations that support them. We operate across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough. Young Lives provides a membership scheme for voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations working with children, young people and their families.
We link directly with children, young people and their families and provide opportunities and activities for them. We provide information, advice and assistance on childcare to families on behalf of the local authorities, including a brokerage service for families of children with special and additional needs. We also provide support services to voluntary, community and social enterprise organisations. We also make sure their views are voiced at higher level meetings and partnerships.
Children and young people feel more valued in their local communities and make positive contributions to them. They have a voice in decision making and are influencing change whilst learning and developing new skills. Families will be better informed to make the best decisions for themselves and their children. The sector works better together, has up skilled staff and deliver better services. The sector is able to shape and influence the design of services commissioned.
