CLEETHORPES YOUTH CLUB
Known as “The Hangout” CYC, the BLNC supported Youth Club in North Cleethorpes was setup by YMCA Humber in 2017 and is now gaining its independence to support young people in the area
“The Hangout” CYC
The Cleethorpes Youth Group started up in August 2017 and has now gained its independence and calls itself the “The Hangout” CYC (Cleethorpes Youth Club).
It was established to fill a local gap in youth provision and to meet the needs of the community. Young people now have somewhere to meet on a Friday night (two sessions for two different age groups) in a supportive and fun environment.
The group started with effort from YMCA Humber as part of the Humber Youth Partnership work, had some seed funding from Big Local North Cleethorpes and of course arose from the hard work of local volunteers getting it started.
BLNC has invested funds into the group and continues to support “The Hangout” with development support and access to funds if needed, but the group continues to become more and more self-sustaining.
More information about the group on this page but keep an eye on their Facebook page for the most up to date information.
“The Hangout” CYC is
– A constituted youth group with a committee of volunteers
– The name and logo were designed by the young people themselves
–Meet in King’s Baptist Church for two sessions on Friday evenings
– YMCA were instrumental in the start up of the group and continue their supportive involvement
– BLNC have been funding the room hire since the start of the group but this subsidy will be removed as the group becomes more and more self-sustaining
– Group is run by YMCA staff and BLNC youth development worker and adult volunteers from the local community
– Young volunteers are increasingly helping to run the club
– The Hangout provides activities that the young people have helped arrange themselves
– BLNC also funded initial equipment for the group (such as an X-box) but donations from businesses and the community are adding to this equipment and the group will continue to aim towards self-sustainability to purchase further equipment themselves
Supported by Big Local
BLNC have been supportive of the project to start up a Youth Group in North Cleethorpes since the start. The lack of provision of youth support in the area was a clear need and BLNC are pleased to be able to support this initiative.
The BLNC Youth Development Support Worker – Jasmin Flint – has been fully engaged with the Youth Group since the outset and attends all the youth group sessions.
BLNC provides additional development support to the youth group and to the newly formed committee of volunteers who oversee the group. Development support is also being provided to help the group with funding applications.
BLNC provided initial funding for room/venue hire for the club to get started and are continuing to subsidise this into the middle of 2018.
BLNC also provided capital investment to purchase initial equipment such as an X-box, a TV, air hockey, crafts equipment and other games equipment.
BLNC continues to be available to those running and governing the club to provide financial support if needed to underpin the activities of the group – but ideally this is provided to match additional funding that the group can draw down itself from donations, fundraising, fees, sponsorship and grants. BLNC aims to support the group as it moves towards full independent self-sustainable funding.
