As a Community Interest Company, YOUTH FOCUS SOUTH WEST is governed by its Directors, who are all passionate about young people and youth work. All our current Non-Executive Directors are youth workers and know the value that youth work brings for young people We also have an Advisory Group of youth work professionals from across the region to guide our South West regional developments.
