Our Strategy

Pro-Action Hertfordshire supports, represents and champions the many organisations and individuals across Hertfordshire who work with children and young people.

We do this by focusing on 5 key strands of work:

  • Quality
  • Safeguarding
  • Training
  • Wellbeing & Resilience
  • Opportunities for Children & Young People

We believe in:

  • Enhancing and enriching support for young people
  • Working in partnership where possible
  • Identifying and meeting needs
  • Strengthening the power of the voluntary sector
  • Keeping children and young people are at the heart of everything we do


Our aim is to raise the quality of provision for children & young people across the county so that young people know they will receive the best possible support from whichever organisation or group that they engage with.


We aim to ensure that all youth and children providers in the county are meeting the Hertfordshire Safeguarding Children’s Board (HSCB) requirements.


We aim to concentrate on key training courses, the majority of which are required for those working with children and young people in a variety of contexts.


As an organisation we responded to the growing requests to provide support in understanding how youth and children’s workers could best assist young people facing challenges around mental health. Two of the team are trained Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) Youth trainers.

Currently the demand for the MHFA Youth Course is high and we have received some funding to pilot a programme with partners in schools.


As an organisation that supports children and young people in Hertfordshire we will work to encourage our member organisations and partners to provide high quality activities. We will also seek to provide various opportunities to meet identified needs of our different age groups.


Membership continues to be an important part of our overall offer, though our emphasis is upon the services and opportunities we offer to create a great membership package that benefits our wide range of groups.

We will continue to gather data and feedback from all activities to provide clear evidence of the value and impact of the services provided by Pro-Action.
