Who we are and what we do

As a charity we have three main areas of activity

  • Providing facilities and an environment in which youth/community work can thrive.
  • Assisting voluntary groups to operate safely, effectively and become self sufficient.
  • Delivering direct youth work projects/ services to young people and those that support them.

The Old Slaughter House

The future

North Devon Council have very generously provided the Barnstaple Youth House with a 99 year lease on the premises ensuring this town centred base for future generations of young people in the area.

We recently negotiated to extend the area of our lease to include the land at the rear of the premises enabling us to provide more space for groups.

This area incorporates an old slaughter house which used to supply the famous Butchers' Row until the outbreak of World War 2. Capital funding is being sought to refurbish this building and the adjoining outside area.
