Ethnic Youth Support Team (EYST) Wales


Ethnic Minorities & Youth Support Team was set up in 2005 by a group of ethnic minority young people in Swansea.

It aimed to fill a gap in provision for young ethnic minority people aged 11-25 by providing a targeted, culturally sensitive and holistic support service to meet their needs.

Since then, EYST has expanded its mission and vision to also meet the needs of ethnic minority young people, families and individuals including refugees and asylum-seekers pan-Wales. It does this through the provision of a wide range of services including education, employment, health, family support and community safety. We also aim to challenge and counter negative stereotypes about ethnic diversity and to increase awareness and understanding about the diverse communities who live in Wales, improving community cohesion.
