Welcome to Ykids!

A word from our CEO

Ykids Members
"Ykids helps me through tough times, and I always feel like I can trust them. Ykids always has lots of activities and games to do and it makes me happy"
"I don’t usually mix with other people, but I have because of Ykids and now I have more friends"

Ykids works to improve the lives and futures of children, young people and their families living in some of the UK’s most deprived areas.

While our heart and soul are in our local community of Bootle, we actively work across the Merseyside region; providing innovative mentoring programmes, school and street projects, sports & arts initiatives, large community events, parent groups and support, a community pantry and 10 weekly clubs ranging from theatre and the arts, to life skills and sport.

"I know how to manage my emotions much better now"
"I love everything about Ykids! Also I have fun, I’m happy and I feel safe"

The Believe awards were set up in 2012 to recognise young people in Merseyside who are unsung heroes and invites 10 outstanding young people aged between 7 and 17 to be celebrated for their stories of selflessness and for making a difference in our communities. This year our awards are focussed on some of the key history makers in Liverpool’s history and the lasting impact they left on this city.

The event will take place at the Titanic Hotel, Liverpool on June 21st and is themed around the 'History Makers'. It will include a 3-course meal, live entertainment and of course the awards, and finishes with a fire eating performance.

The Believe Awards are open to nominations of young people aged 7-17 living in Merseyside. Nominations will run for 12 weeks closing on 13th of May 2024. 10 winners will each receive 4 free tickets to the event.


"I do more activities, have more friends and feel happier because of Ykids"
