Young Women's Trust supports and represents young women across England and Wales facing unemployment, low pay, insecure employment and discrimination. There are a number of ways to get involved.

YWT Lounge Facebook Group

The Lounge is an online space for young women with experience of living on low or no pay to talk to each other, share opinions and experiences, give feedback on relevant issues and be kept up to date with our latest news and opportunities.

Advisory Panel

The advisory panel help us to understand what it’s like to be a young woman today. If you are aged 16-30 and have experience of unemployment, living on low pay, have few or no formal qualifications or similar disadvantage, you could join our Advisory Panel.

The panel meets up twice a year at residential weekends to share ideas and shape the work of the charity (and have fun!) Members receive training in areas like public speaking, campaigning, media interviews and social media.
