The Young Lives Foundation

The Young Lives Foundation (YLF) is an award winning independent children’s charity in Kent with expertise in Advocacy and Youth Programmes


We aim to support young people to thrive through highly effective and accessible programmes where young people:

• are heard and empowered
• are supported by consistent adults through times of challenge and change
• have opportunities and resources to be happy and thrive


We want all young people to live in communities where they are heard, are safe and supported; with opportunities to thrive.
