Hertfordshire Youth United


Hertfordshire Youth United is a Lieutenancy initiative, led by the Lord-Lieutenant, that brings together the senior leaders from eight Uniformed Youth Groups across the County.  The aim is to support each of the organisations and to support each other through communication and sharing best practice.

Our purpose is to provide young people with the opportunity to take part in a wide and varied range of activities to gain new skills, increase their confidence and build friendships in fun, safe and exciting environments.

In essence, we aim to support our young people today to set them up with skills they can use for life.

Additionally, we currently have availability for New Joiners and are seeking Adult Leaders. Please contact the organisation you are interested in directly and we will look forward to welcoming you.


“I am delighted to support Hertfordshire Youth United with their endeavour to ensure that our young people have exciting opportunities to gain new skills. I am very grateful to the dedicated Leaders of the eight organisations in our County for providing fun and safe environments for the youth of Hertfordshire to attend. The activities and adventures that the young people undertake provide invaluable life experiences which they take with them into adulthood. “

HM Lord-Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, Robert Voss CBE CStJ


Hertfordshire Youth United were delighted to attend the two Trooping the Colour events this year; the Colonel’s Review on 10 June and the King’s Birthday Parade on 17 June. The events were attended by 90 young people from the 8 youth organisations in the county which include St John Ambulance, Girlguiding and the Police, amongst others.  The Lord Lieutenant of Hertfordshire, Robert Voss CBE CStJ and Mrs Voss found time to chat with a number of the young people attending the King’s Birthday Parade.Major Moynham from the Army Cadet Force said “the parade itself was amazing to witness and be so close to His Majesty and the Royal family as they were riding past us. The cherry on top; being escorted to the front of the palace after walking down the mall, is a memory the cadets and adult volunteers will not forget.
