Helping prepare young people for independent life
Helping prepare young people for independent life

Our Charity

 

 

 

Our Charity was founded in February 2018 and has been set up as an Unincorporated Association, a legal form of charity that requires us to be governed by a constitution - set out by the Charities Commission. 

 

As a charity our aims are to raise enough money to fund the running costs of our two youth projects, so that we can keep our entrance fee as low as possible for young people and their families and the doors open all year around.

 

We are not paid to do the work we carry out. Our youth workers, trustees and our Chair Lady are all voluntary - which means all funds raised are solely spent on running costs of the projects. 

 

This being said, we are extremely grateful for any donations and support we are given. Sharing our work, by mouth, via social media or generally just showing an interest is what keeps us alive and able to help young people in the area.

 

We are always looking for new people and businesses to work with, so if you think we could work together, get in touch today!
