The Whiteley Youth Club was originally launched around 2003. It underwent a revamp in March 2011 and was very successful until 2015, but unfortunatly had to close due to a lack of volunteers.
In 2018 Whiteley Community Association engaged with Y Services to reboot the Whiteley Youth Club. The club gives young people the chance to meet their peers from the local area, to enjoy fun activities, and learn new skills.
The Youth Club is based at the Whiteley Community Centre and runs on Friday evenings from 18:30 - 20:30 (Inc. school half term holidays - but not during the Christmas, Easter and Summer breaks). It is designed for young people aged 10 - 14 years old. The entry fee is £2.00 per week (pre registration is required - see below), and a tuck shop is provided for refreshments.
In 2011 grant funding was provided by councillors from both Fareham and Winchester Councils to purchase new equipment.. Further grants were made available in 2018.
Y-Services provides help and support for young people through youth clubs, outreach work, activities and more.
Friday Nights will be run by a dedicated youth worker, supported by volunteers who have all had the appropriate DBS checks and who have been properly trained. More volunteers are needed. If you would like to get involved, or require more information, or to register a young person, please contact the team by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
