About Us

Youth Action Sussex were established in October 2010. YAS gained charity status in April 2011 and has three part time members of staff.

The Objects of Youth Action Sussex are:

The aim of Youth Action Sussex Ltd. is to offer all young people between the ages of 16-25 an equal opportunity to improve their personal, vocational and social skills so that they are able to make a valuable contribution to the community in which they live.

We are a small charity that manages two projects, both of which support young people in Brighton and Hove to to learn new skills and engage with their communities. RASP supports young refugees and asylum seekers to actively engage in their communities via a mentoring and befriending project that relies on volunteers for support and also enables the young people to volunteer in the wider community. The second project is a supported volunteering project for young people who are NEET (not in education, employment or training) or who have disabilities. We will source suitable and supportive volunteering placements for young people and support them through the application process and throughout their time volunteering.

Both projects result in a wider community benefit locally, through other charities and community groups having increased numbers volunteers. Both projects also aim to break down negative stereotypes of young people and promote understanding and learning.

Eastbourne House Clearance are a local company who offer a house and property clearance service. If you're a bit further down the coast, then Hastings House Clearance may be more appropriate for you. They both offer a complete clearance solution, working with Landlords, agents, probate and more.

If you need a Hastings Sign Maker then Vinyl Vault are the people to call. They offer a full design service and off the shelf solutions, from their base in Hastings. They will work throughout Sussex (East and West).

All companies need to be responsible in the disposal of any old computer and IT equipment. For free collections (over 10 pcs and laptops) and disposal, the people at https://weeecompliance.co.uk can help. They are licensed and insured, responsible and capable.
