Update January 2018

Neston Community & Youth Centre have been working really hard to bring support services that people need to the town.  Working with partners, we now have a range of support available right here where you need it.

Citizens Advice West Cheshire relocated their service here, and the number of people using the service has increased by more then 300%.  So they have decided to offer a further drop-in session on a Wednesday afternoon.

On Tuesdays, P3 are offering a further drop-in for tenants in the area who have any housing issues, and ForHousing will be on hand for their tenants to come and discuss their services.

West Cheshire FoodBank relocated to the centre on Thursday mornings and have already seen a significant increase in people accessing their support.

We have recognised the difficulties people have had accessing services in Ellesmere Port and Chester, and with the goodwill of all of these organisations, we have tried to improve access to these services.

In addition, Amber Button continue to run the Work Club on Wednesday mornings providing help and support to anyone looking for work, whether unemployed or just looking for a change.

The Alzheimer’s Society continue to provide their drop-in sessions for people who are living with and caring for people living with Dementia-related conditions.  Cheshire Carers also provide support for anyone who is a Carer every month.

Some history

Neston Community & Youth Centre replaced the old Neston Youth Club after 30 years of use by the Youth and the Community of the Neston area. The land in Burton Road was donated in the 1960’s for benefit of people under the age of 21.
Since closure of the youth club, research by the Neston Market Town Initiative (MTI) revealed the need for this facility. In response, the MTI, in partnership with Ellesmere Port & Neston Borough Council, Northwest Regional Development Agency (NWDA) and Neston Community Youth Centre Ltd (NCYC) planned this new building. Substantial financial support was also received from The Fair Share Trust, Waste Recycling Environmental Ltd. (WREN), Connexions and Project Rural Matters (Cheshire Constabulary). The new Centre is managed by NCYC Ltd, a Company Limited by Guarantee and a registered charity.
