GOVERNANCE

Our Mission

Willingham Youth Trust (WYT) was set up in 2010 as a registered charity (no 1139104) and a registered limited company. It is a not-for-profit charitable organisation established to provide a service to secondary school age young people in Willingham.

 

Our main remit is “to advance in life and help young people through the provision of recreational and leisure time activities provided in the interest of social welfare and designed to improve the conditions of life, and provide support and activities which develop their skills, capacities and capabilities, to enable young people to participate in society as mature and responsible individuals.”

 

Our main activities to date have been to successfully establish a weekly youth club, in collaboration with Connections Bus Project, and to run various fundraising events and additional activities for our young people.

 

Willingham Youth Trust is run by a board of trustees with volunteer helpers. Our trustees and volunteers all offer their time willingly to support the ongoing development of WYT and the delivery of exciting educational and recreational activities for the young people of Willingham, helping them to have the best possible opportunities in life.

When are the Youth Club sessions run? 

Youth Club runs every Wednesday night from 7-8:30pm during term time. 

Due to limited space, our sessions are currently split, with Year 7s attending week A sessions and Years 8 & 9 attending week B sessions.

If you are interested in coming along, just drop us a message on Instagram or Facebook, or email us and we will let you know which week would be best for you. You will be asked to complete a brief 'contact details' form the first time you attend a session.

The Youth Club is based at Willingham Youth Centre, which is located at the Ploughman's Hall. Access is to the left of the main doors.
