East Durham City Youth Scheme

Charity description

East Durham City Youth Scheme logo
East Durham City Youth Scheme (EDYs) provides ground-breaking youth work to the communities of Gilesgate, Sherburn and Shadforth in County Durham.

Who we are:
EDYs is run by the Anglican parishes of Gilesgate, Sherburn & Shadforth in partnership with Durham Youth for Christ. We employ a youth & community worker to deliver a variety of roles across our community.
What we do:
  • Detached youth work in Gilesgate, Sherburn & Sherburn
  • Run the weekly drop-in youth club 'SCUFFs' in Shadforth
  • Deliver Messy Church in Sherburn Village
  • Have conversations with young people to boost
    their confidence, leadership & life skills
  • Network with community groups to help improve the lives of
    the young people in our city and villages.
What does my donation go toward ?
EDYs is funded exclusively through grant funding and donations. We're trying to raise money to allow our youth and community worker to sustain & develop the work that they are doing in all of our communities.
Donations go directly to the EDYS youth project, enabling us to deliver the projects that we currently do.
