Brunswick Youth Project

What is BYP?

The Brunswick Youth Project is a localised youth service that provides a range of services to over 230 local young people. As well as weekly youth clubs on Monday and Tuesday nights, our workers provide one-to-one mentoring, holiday provision, schools work and much more.

Why do we Work?

Brunswick Ward in Leamington Spa has the highest number of priority families and the second highest proportion of children in poverty in Warwick District. 23% of children in the ward are living in poverty, 22% receive free school meals, 22% of households live in fuel poverty. Brunswick Youth Project is based at the heart of the most disadvantaged housing estate and is its only youth provision. We are passionate about supporting the local young people in our area and want to be able to offer them support and guidance where possible.

How do we Work?

Our club is a safe, friendly and young person centred space that allows the development of skills, through activities such as cooking and sports. We also help increase knowledge through discussion, debate and specialist support on a range of topics and provide holistic support through one to one mentoring. To maintain our ethos of equity, all access is free and we provide sustenance by the simple but effective provision of toast.

Brunswick Youth Project also endeavours to offer a summer programme delivering additional activities, trips, food and a three day residential for approx 10-15 young people providing opportunities and experiences they may not otherwise be able to access.

Where do we Work?
