Birmingham Youth Service works with young people aged 13-19 to support them in the transition into their adult lives. The service works in a variety of settings, including; centre based, detached and outreach work, special projects, residentials, one to one support, work with young people not in employment, education or training (NEET).

Birmingham Youth Service offers a range of exciting and challenging opportunities to young people and uses informal education to expand their knowledge, experience and aspirations. The role of the Youth Worker is key to developing trusting and positive relationships with young people, which can then support them through any number of issues that may be impacting on their lives.

Birmingham Youth Service is a statutory Birmingham City Council provision, but works in close partnership with a wide range of organisations, including third sector youth projects, schools and colleges, West Midlands Police, Health Authorities, local resident groups and other council departments.
