Why Support IYC?

It’s Your Choice has been working with local young people for 30 years meaning we understand their on-the-ground needs and they trust us.

Young people here in the Forest face a huge range of issues, just like in any other location; IYC offers a safe, confidential, free and non-judgmental service, helping them to make positive choices and stay on track.

Thank you very much for all your help the other day … You made me feel much more confident about what’s ahead of me, and I am very grateful!” 


Whether you’re a local business looking for ways to fulfill your corporate social responsibilities or an individual with some time to give, we always welcome those who would be interested in volunteering for us.

Roles including volunteer youth advisers, administration volunteers, or being on our Board of Trustees are regularly available.

You can find details of our current volunteering vacancies here.


Donations which enable us to cover the costs of things we don’t get funding for are greatly appreciated.

Fun ways to get involved with our fundraising efforts include attending an event hosted by us, such as a quiz, or hosting your own event or running a marathon on our behalf.

We’re always happy to hear from local businesses and sports or community groups who would like to choose us as their Charity of the Year.

Alternatively, you could simply make a donation to IYC using our online donation page.

Donate Now:

Every penny you contribute goes towards making the lives of young people easier.

Did you know that a donation of just £3 will help keep our Food Bank topped up or a donation of £50 will provide a tent, sleeping bag, torch and emergency food parcel for a homeless young person with nowhere else to go?

You can find out more about how your donation will be used here.
