WSP Solicitors announce 2-year Charity Partnership with Young Gloucestershire
WSP Solicitors are proud to announce our new charity partner Young Gloucestershire (YG) in what is set to be a new 2-year charity partnership through 2023 and 2024.
YG is a charity that helps young people in Gloucestershire who are facing complex challenges in their lives. They provide practical ways young people can find confidence and develop skills to get back on track and improve their futures. In the year ending March 2022, they worked with 645 individual young people for mental-health support alone. Find out more here.
What does Young Gloucestershire do?
- Mental-health support including telephone, 1-2-1 youth worker support, and counselling
- Intensive mentoring for those at risk of being involved in crime, disabled young people, and girls
- Unemployment programme and qualifications for those furthest from the job market, NEET, or simply lost as to what their future career looks like
- Support for those on the cusp of school exclusion or those excluded from school
Who has Young Gloucestershire helped?
“It’s been a long slow process but YG’s support has been great. They have helped me both practically and emotionally” Sophie had a complex home life and had experienced trauma that left her feeling trapped and negative about life.

Silas Miller, Head of Marketing for WSP Solicitors said of the partnership “We are so excited to partner with a charity that does so much good for young people locally. As a business providing family law services, the well-being and support available for young people is a true concern for us. Being part of the change and supporting Young Gloucestershire makes real sense for WSP and we are looking forward to a successful 2 years working together!”.
Karl Gwilliam, YG’s fundraiser, said “It’s fantastic to have WSP’s support for the next two years as mental health issues amongst young people have increased exponentially, while the economic conditions, mean that youth unemployment is expected to rise in the coming year. With this support, we can create opportunities to address both situations, and is more important than ever”.
WSP Solicitors are really excited about the opportunities this partnership will bring. Please keep an eye out for events and fundraising opportunities throughout the rest of the year.
