Youth West

We are proud to be part of Youth West - a partnership of seven organisations, led by YMCA Norfolk, working together to establish a network of youth clubs across West Norfolk to provide a range of activities for young people aged 11 to 18 years of age.
These open access youth clubs also aim to build up a centralised training programme for people wishing to get involved in youth work as a paid employee or a volunteer.
As well as YMCA Norfolk, we are working with the following partners:
SWAN Youth Centre
The Garage
West Norfolk MIND
St Edmunds
National Youth Theatre
We will be offering a free youth club (and school holiday activities) for young people in two areas of West Norfolk commencing in July 2018:

Look out for details of school holiday activities too.


Youth West, is a Youth Investment Fund programme and is funded jointly by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport and the Big Lottery Fund.

If you are interested in attending one of the above youth clubs, or if you would like to enquire about volunteering to support the Youth West activities, please contact
