Youth Offer

Over the next three years, Doncaster Council plans to invest in strengthening a community-based, open access youth offer which provides access to a diverse range of places to go and things to do across the borough. We are currently in the process of identifying and working with a range of partners to develop and deliver a strong, diverse, sustainable offer for young people in Doncaster.

A Youth Offer for the Future

The initial stages of the programme have involved speaking to young people, voluntary, community and faith (vcf) organisations and statutory partners. Four Locality events have been held which have helped shape Locality Plans as working documents to develop over the coming months. the purpose of these plans is to set out in one place for each locality:

  • What local young people have told us is important to them
  • What local organisations can offer and what support is needed to help continue, strengthen or start to deliver a youth offer
  • The demographics of the local area - including individual assets of young people, community assets and physical assets e.g. buildings
  • The shared outcomes developed through partnership working with young people at the heart of these

Each Locality Plan is owned by the people and organisations that create positive activities and personal development opportunities for young people and is a working document that will be regularly updated as this programme progresses.

Community Asset Transfers

Part of providing local people with the chance of an active role in influencing the support that will be provided to deliver the Youth Offer includes the transfer of buildings to community ownership. The aim of community asset transfers is that the ownership and management of land and buildings is given to communities to improve local social, economic and environmental well-being.
