Don’t just take our word for it – here’s what people have to say about CYP:
CYP has given the chance for me to feel safe and free in this time of loneliness and confusion. I’m really thankful and happy that CYP has offered services during this pandemic.
Because of CYP my sons’ gain independence and guidance to stay out of trouble from the area. CYP is a wonderful project and I am extremely thankful that my children are lucky to be able to attend.
“I started CYP in a shell and I was quite shy, through the years at CYP. I have been exposed to so many different people, I’ve been able to develop skills and get jobs with CYP and I can say that I love volunteering for the same reason, to give opportunities to young people that I have had in the past.”
It’s been a pleasure to fund CYP’s ‘Trauma Informed Outreach Programme’. The charity responded to new needs induced by lockdown, leading to improved mental health and access to crisis services for vulnerable young people.
“CYP has increased my confidence and boosted me to achieve my life goals. The people that attend and work there support me whenever needed and make me feel as if I can be myself when in CYP. I would say most of my best memories growing up are down to the community that is CYP.”
CYP is full of positive, talented and caring people helping young people be the best versions of themselves.
I can’t think of a more rewarding place to volunteer.
“CYP is such a great community! I have been attending for years calling CYP almost my home. The staff here are great and are always willing to help no matter the situation. I love it here!”
“CYP has always been welcoming and made us feel comfortable from day one. There’s never a dull day and now feels like one big family. “
