The Young Lives Foundation

We believe that every young person in need should have access to the resources and opportunities needed for them to achieve their potential and lead fulfilled lives.


We are experiencing technical issues with our email system. Whilst we work around the clock to resolve this, please call our main phoneline on 01622 693459 or contact us via our enquiry form here. You can also send us a message on Facebook or Instagram.
Thank you for your patience.
