Element Society is a local charity that aims to empower young people through their projects, many of which are youth-led.

They primarily work with 16 to 18-year-olds, however, certain projects work with 13 to 25-year-olds. Although many of their projects are open to all young people, some are designed for specific targeted groups that face marginalisation.
