A Little Something About Us

Here at Youth Action Diversity Trust (or YADT as we are better known) we focus on encouraging youth and family engagement and participation in activities and learning across the Bexley Borough, whilst ensuring that everything we do is inclusive and a whole lot of fun! We love working with children, young people and adults and we pride ourselves in being creative and dynamic in all that we do. We hold the City and Guilds Gold Award for Assured Quality for our work. This puts us among the top Youth and Community Organisations in London, which we think is pretty special!  Here at YADT we have a clear objective to improve citizenship and to help children and young people to structure their life so that it is the best it can be. We also support adults to reduce isolation and to improve health and wellbeing. Some people have very challenging times in their life and we aim to play a small part in bringing structure and support to their world. 

We could talk all day about the work we do across the whole of Bexley.
