Durham City Youth Project’s News


“Extra, Extra read all about”…..those of you who come along to our sessions will know what amazing things we do at Durham City Youth Project.  In January 2019 we took a group of young people to the Panto at the Tyne Theatre to see Cinderella, they had a fantastic time – “oh yes they did!”

In December last year we helped host a Inter-generational Event with Framwellgate Moor WI, the isolated and elderly came to us for Christmas lunch and carols!  Young people from our Duke of Edinburgh Award helped with serving the meals, calling the bingo and chatting with the guests. 

We had a great time before the Christmas holidays too, young people choose to visit to the  Cinema, Pizzaland, Karting, Ice Skating at Centre for Life and dessert to finish
at Kaspas…yummy!

Our new Junior Youth Club started in October with a great turnout of youngsters eager to get involved in lots of things including Halloween fun, Christmas crafts and
making masks for Chinese New Year.

We’ve lots of other things too, bag packs, cooking, walks, afternoon teas, scone and cake baking, quad biking, go karting, high ropes, kayaking, camping and Debbie (Project  Co-ordinator) and Aurelia (trustee) were invited to the to the Palace! Yes Buckingham Palace, to help to celebrate Garfield and Weston’s 60th Anniversary!

So if you haven’t made it along to the Youth Project, you’re missing out!  There’s always new things going on and lots to get involved with.  And if there’s anything you want to know around sexuality, your body, sex, drugs or alcohol, well we’re the people to speak to (in confidence if you want too).

We know growing up and it can have its issues but it’s also one of the most exciting times in your life, we think you’re amazing and we can’t wait to see you!
