At MY Trust, we believe young people deserve support and opportunities to kickstart their future.

National Citizen Service (NCS)

NCS aims to help young people aged 16 and 17 (whether at school, college, work or unemployed) gain new skills, challenge themselves, gain confidence and improve their C.V all whilst doing something positive in the community!

Join our youth forum

In order to ensure that young voices are heard in all aspects of the work we do, MY Trust has a dedicated Youth Forum who meet once a month. They analyse change, contribute their opinion, and tell us what they think is relevant to young people across Kent, Medway and East Sussex right now.

The team really resonated with the work that the One Big Family charity do for the homeless and decided to support them. As well as this we decided to work alongside Rainham youth club to raise money for OBF. We had the idea to run a charity day for the members of the youth club and raise awareness of the homeless in our younger community. Read more
