Combined with over 120 years of experience working with young people; our staff team is innovative, diverse, dynamic and passionate about creating positive, lasting change for young people.
A strong staff team, supported by volunteers, is the foundation of TOKKO.

It’s an honour and a privilege to be asked to lead such an innovative youth charity.
This is a great organisation made up of great people, with real expertise and I am confident that together we can succeed in providing a safe and welcoming space for all young people.
‘I have been lucky enough to see TOKKO develop from its infancy over the last 8 years to the incredible charity you find today; working with some amazing funders, partners, staff and young people along the way to make a lasting positive difference. I get a sense of pride when young people take positive steps forward – (however small those steps might be) and when as a team we find a way to make what initially seemed impossible, possible.’
‘I am proud to work for Tokko because every single member of the team, no matter what their actual job title, puts their heart and soul into this work and does their absolute best to help every young person that they can, often going above and beyond.’
