Durham City Youth Projects News for 2019
We were delighted to have been awarded the Durham County Council’s Commission for the continuation of the Mobile Sexual Health Bus for another year! Our aim is to increase our reach supporting more young people with sexual health and healthy relationships. So look out for us in Seaham, Ferryhill, Thornley, and Easington. We’ll be doing C-Card, a condom distribution scheme that provides young people 13 -24 with a C Card which entitles them to free condoms and access to sexual health information, advice and support.
Sound Minds, is our new programme on Healthy Relationships, it’s being rolled out to schools and other providers from September 2019, it’s a pilot which has funded by Enterprise Development Programme.

However, the aims and objectives of Durham City Youth Project remain the same, they are to provide recreational and leisure activities aimed at promoting skills and capabilities in young people, as well as providing informal education. We are currently providing Junior & Senior Youth Clubs, a Youth Council, Detached Youth Work and the Duke of Edinburgh awards. They are funded through the kind support of publicly minded sponsors from both the public, private and voluntary sectors.
