About Us

Our overall aim is to ‘Enable young people to have somewhere to go and something to do by providing youth-centred services in a rural setting’

We provide a range of services that aim to;

  • Reduce risk taking behaviour
  • Reduce rural isolation
  • Increase participation in a variety of sessions
  • Increase confidence and social skills
  • Enable young people to influence decision making

In providing these services we feel that young people will;

  • Have fun
  • Grow in confidence
  • Make new friends
  • Boost self esteem
  • Improve communication between young people, the management committee, youth partners and residents in Corbridge
  • Become more actively involved in their local community
  • Take greater responsibility for themselves and other young people in the area

CYI supports around 60 young people over the course of a year between the ages of 9 to 25 years old, who live in Corbridge and the surrounding rural area.
