Young Women's Trust

Type: Charity

Founded: 1855

Employees: 15

We are a small, dynamic charity that aims to improve lifelong opportunities for young women aged 16-30 by addressing the poverty, inequality and discrimination that many of them face.

We have a proud history, having been founded over 150 years ago as YWCA England & Wales, but we have evolved and we now have a new focus and an innovative approach. 

Our vision is of a society which respects and listens to young women, actively encourages their self-confidence and where they have the opportunity to be financially independent and participate fully.

Work It Out

Work It Out is a free telephone and online coaching service which helps 18-24 year old women with work, life and building confidence. If you are not in work, or have been in a job for less than six months, we would like to help you.

Coaching is a form of support which helps people make the changes they want in their lives. We can put you in touch with one of our trained specialist coaches, so you can arrange a time to have a free coaching session by phone or online.

Get Involved

Join our Advisory Panel

As a charity, Young Women's Trust is committed to ensuring that young women – aged 16-30 – are engaged in the activity and development of our work.  We are particularly keen to hear from young women who have current or very recent experience of the following:

  • Few or no formal qualifications
  • NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training) ( aged 16-24)
  • Long term unemployment (aged 25-30)
  • In and out of low paid employment

If this applies to you and you would like to be part of our Advisory Panel, please get in touch via our website. 

If you do not have this experience, but would still like to work with us, we are always looking for women and men of any age to help shape and participate in our campaigning and fundraising activities.
