Strengthening foundations

YST Strengthening foundations
Strengthen our foundations to ensure we can sustain our mission.

We will deliver our charitable objectives through good governance, a skilled workforce and sustainable income.

Times are increasingly tough for charities. To be able to sustain our mission and continue improving children’s lives into the future, it is vital that we ensure our own organisation is as strong, effective and efficient as it can be.

This means finding new ways to generate the income which makes our work possible while ensuring we are efficiently run and achieving the maximum impact with the resources available to us.

It also means ensuring our governance and workforce are strong, skilled and diverse – reflecting the world in which we operate. Valuing diversity and tackling inequality are integral to our mission and values. We will continue to ensure that this is reflected not just in what we do, but how we do it.

By strengthening the foundations of YST we will ensure our work continues to improve children’s lives today and for generations to come.


  • Maintain good governance
  • Sustain a diverse and engaged workforce
  • Enhance our profile, impact and effectiveness
  • Ensure we are easy to do business with.
