What we do
Kirklees Youth Alliance CIO (charitable incorporated organisation) is a membership organisation for VCSE youth organisations across Kirklees, West Yorkshire.
We support the development of good quality community youth services and positive activities for local children and young people aged 8+.
Our core team provides infrastructure support to member organisations including training, help with funding, policies and procedures and networking opportunities.
We represent our members on local decision-making bodies (e.g. Kirklees Youth Development Programme Board).
Information & Guidance
Automatically receive youth work news including funding information, job vacancies and youth voice opportunities as well as receive one-to-one support and guidance for your organisation.
Access to free training courses (e.g. Awareness of Youth Gambling and Gaming, Youth Mental Health First Aid, Level 2 Youth Work Practice).
KYA holds quarterly online network meetings for members.
Enjoy meeting other groups from across the district and sharing good practice and ideas.
Free DBS Checks
As well as offering bespoke safeguarding training to your organisation, we will organise DBS checks for your volunteers free of charge.
How can you
We are always looking for new partners to work with.
Financial donations and other resources for community youth projects welcome.
Gain valuable skills (or “help out”) at local youth sessions.
We are delighted to launch our website and new membership process a year after we registered KYA as an independent CIO (charitable incorporated organisation).
We hope our members find lots of helpful information.
