Project Inspire



Youth Action Wiltshire is an award winning service delivered through Community First. Today we are proud to be one of the largest youth support services in Wiltshire. With support from a wide-range of public sector service partners, sponsors and Trust giving organisations we offer support to a broad network of youth clubs and also to disadvantaged and vulnerable young people aged 5-25 years including young carers, those facing challenges in their lives and young people not in education, employment or training.

What We Do:

Employability Programmes "Project Inspire" – supporting young people back on track who are at risk of NEET (Not In Education, Employment Or Training) or who are NEET

Youth Club Support – developing new youth clubs, and working with youth and young leaders to ensure voluntary youth clubs are safe interesting places to be.

Volunteering – NCS Credits and Young Leaders programmes utilising volunteering as a tool for personal development.

Young Carers – keeping young carers safe in their caring role and equipping them for the future.

Splash - Providing positive activity programmes for young people facing challenges in their lives, which increase confidence self-esteem and skills.
