More than 1 million young women in England and Wales are at high risk of being trapped in poverty. Young Women’s Trust is a national charity working with women aged 16-30 to stop this number growing year by year.
We work in three ways
- Give young women a voice – through participation and advocacy we ensure that young women, whose voices are rarely heard, can create change.
- Campaign for change– we run campaigns that will make the biggest positive impact in the lives of young women today.
- Support young women - we provide a free telephone and online coaching service for young women aged 18-30

The first report of the 'Scarred for Life?' Inquiry, Totally Wasted? The Crisis of Young Women's Worklessness, highlights the stark reality for women who are Not in Education, Employment or Training (NEET). It shows how hundreds of thousands of young women who want to work cannot do so because the advice, training and support they receive has them competing for a limited number of poorly paid jobs.
