We offer young people individual support, access to group work personal and social development activities, accreditation and qualifications in Functional Skills (English, Maths and ICT), Key Skills (Working with Others, Improving Own Learning and Performance and Problem Solving), Employability, Leadership and Volunteering.

In 2009 Youth Action Wiltshire merged with the charity and is now the dedicated youth services arm of Community First.

YAW is governed by Community First's Trustee Board. A YAW Committee made up of former YAW and current Community First trustees and staff oversees the work and organises fundraising activities and events to provide additional, dedicated income to support YAW services.
