Innovative, practical and positive support for young people
How we got here
Merseyside Youth Association has a long and extraordinary history, dating all the way back to 1890. Grounded in the incredible social history of Liverpool, our affiliated clubs and their predecessors have been helping young people cope with all kinds of challenges.
Merseyside has experienced tumultuous change, from wars to pandemics. As its young people have adapted, so have we – taking on different forms and anticipating the currents influencing their lives. We’re proud of the history we’ve made, and the future our staff and volunteers are helping to create. Through a growing range of innovative projects, we’re supporting the generation who will go on to shape our city and region.
