CYC The Hangout is the Cleethorpes Youth Club which was inititally setup with help from YMCA and funding from BLNC. Now run independently it still receives support from BLNC and is our focus for coordinating support for young people in North Cleethorpes.

CLOSED. Unfortunately CYC The Hangout has has to close its doors for face to face sessions until further notice whilst the coronavirus crisis unfolds.  We’ll be open again later in the year of course once everything has improved and we can again get access to our venue safely.

However, we’re currently running weekly Zoom sessions so that our young people can get involved online each Friday.  Further details below.  We’d love to have you join us online if you can make it.

We’ll update this page and our Facebook page with any news updates.

For information about joining in the Friday online Zoom sessions please contact Lydia Day via

CYC The Hangout is an independent Youth Group which meets every Friday evening in Cleethorpes for young people aged 8-17.

The group gives local young people a safe and welcoming place to meet, socialise, have fun, learn and develop.

The team leading the session are all experienced in youth work and are there to provide a great environment for our young people and are encouraging both fun and games and more serious learning and development.

The group is a constituted voluntary group with a small committee of volunteers who lead it strategically. The group is supported by Big Local North Cleethorpes through the provision of part funding and development support time. Local partnership working brings other expertise and experience to help the group and we have some excellent volunteers who help with session work and behind the scenes.

The Hangout is also the focal point for Big Local North Cleethorpes to develop Youth Support programmes, networks and support across North Cleethorpes.

If you’re interested in supporting the group, volunteering or simply want to get your young person involved then all the information you need is on this page – get in touch.
