The Kent Council for Voluntary Youth Services is the only umbrella organisation in the County to which all the countywide voluntary youth organisations belong.


The primary role of KCVYS is to act as an advocate - on behalf of youth work in the voluntary sector and also on behalf of our member organisations. We aim to advocate with local authorities (i.e. Kent County Council and Medway Council), other key decision-makers and opinion informers (i.e. Members of Parliament, media), our members and the public.


Our secondary role is as the hub of a growing network - to ensure that effective communication takes place between the KCVYS Executive Committee and member organisations on current issues within voluntary youth work. We also use this communication to collect the views of members to substantiate and give credence to our advocacy.


KCVYS, a voluntary organisation works in close partnership with Kent Youth Service and Medway Youth Service, both of whom offer financial and non-financial support.


The organisations with whom we interrelate are identified on our Network page
