Objectives

SYC was set up in 2023 by a group of local charities with a shared commitment to the young people who live or study in Stratford-upon-Avon and surrounding area. Our members asked young people what would make life better, they told us and, with the generous support of Stratford Town Trust, we're working to make it happen.

Our founding members: Escape Arts, iLeap, Lifespace Trust, New Meaning Learning and Warwickshire Pride.

Activities

Young people told us that they wanted somewhere to go (a safe space to meet friends and make new ones), something to do (based on their interests and talents) and someone to talk to (trusted adults who they could open up to). SYC services will run from our incredible new Youth Hub, which opened in September 2023, and other locations across the district.

Everyone at SYC and organisation we work with, believes that young people are the best people to shape and lead our services. Like the Youth Hub, which took several years to become a reality, we know that becoming a genuinely youth-led organisation will take time and, thanks to our amazing young leaders, we’re off to a great start.
