Strong today. Stronger tomorrow. Strongest together.

We are Sunderland youth work, and we are all together.

The Consortium is made up of nine youth work organisations, all of whom share one common goal; To transform the lives of young people across the city of Sunderland and to create a strong, sustainable future for youth work services.

Our member experience and geographical reach mean we’re able to provide a broader and more inclusive city-wide service for children and young people and families in Sunderland.
