Hi there, thank you for visiting our website and Blog! We are Rhyl Youth Group!
We have been running projects in West Rhyl for a number of years with support from other groups in the community, this year with help from adults we have setup our own committee rather than relying on adults, we have 5 young people aged 16 to 18 as the officers, 6 young people under the age of 16 who are junior members (with no financial control) and 5 advisory members from the local police, local business and youth / community workers. we also have external advisors from Street Games UK, Sported UK and are joining the WCVYS amongst others. We are currently running a number of sessions and wish to build on these over the next 12 months.
We run a youth led youth club where members chose all activities we undertake and junior members work with the adult volunteers to deliver the youthclub. We are also running the West Rhyl Doorstep sports/Street Games which enables children and young people to get involved in outdoor activities on land provided to us with approval from the police and local authority/town council ect.
We make decisions ourselves and have adults who provide advise and specific roles such as a Designated Safeguarding Officer, Health and Safety Champion, First Aiders and Financial control.
We will update this blog regularly, but for now at least you know a little about us!
