Community Youth Project has a successful track record of reducing antisocial behaviour and juvenile crime/nuisance through provision of safe meeting space, positive sporting and adventurous activities and engaging young people in local democracy/decision making. Experience has shown us that our success is founded on the trust and support of parents and the local community, so we work in partnership with them too, and with local agencies to tackle issues which matter to local residents.

Our work is focused on the five core outcomes from the Children’s Act 2004.

Be healthy, Stay safe Enjoy and achieve, Make a positive contribution, Achieve economic well-being

Our work aims to instil the confidence, self-esteem and life skills necessary to avoid NEET categorisation, welfare dependency and crime.
