About us

Young people have a unique perspective that cannot be found elsewhere.

The National Youth Reference Group (NYRG) is made up of young people aged 16-25, who have experienced homelessness. Managed by St Basils and funded through The Department for Communities and Local Government, the NYRG is available to Local Authorities and organisations working with young people to deliver;

- Workshops

- Presentations

- Consultation

- Staff Training

- Sound Panels

The NYRG objectives are to increase and strengthen young people’s involvement in the development of strategy, policy, services and service delivery.
