Altruism (generosity) is one of our core values & so there are numerous ways you can get involved in the SOTYC.



We are dependent on volunteer time & financial support to continue to impact the lives of  disadvantaged young people we connect with across Stoke-on-Trent & to ensure that our work as a voluntary group with charitable aims is sustainable across the city.


Currently, Ruff & Ruby youth charity hold the financial pot for the Stoke-On-Trent Youth Collective, fully supported by professional accountancy practices & financial services at VAST: the Dudson Centre Hanley. Every gift donation for the Stoke-On-Trent Youth Collective must include the reference: SOTYC Donation

YOU can make a massive difference to the lives of vulnerable young people by volunteering, donating goods or money, arranging a fundraiser, sponsoring an item or event, adopting us as your charitable organisation of the year, or giving towards one of our innovative projects.


Volunteering is at the heart of what we do as a collective from serving the vision, to giving time to support other organisations & young people themselves.
