Youth Canterbury CIO

We are a registered charity (1208000) that provide directly or in partnership, youth services and places to go for young people across the district. We also promote clubs and activities offered by a range of agencies and service providers.


Collectively we work to provide young people with a range of opportunities enabling them to meet others for fun and friendships.

We have a number of venues available for young people to meet and hang out, with lots of things going on.


You can also drop in and meet with local advisers and get specialist support.​

We are happy to talk to young people about anything they need support and advice on. It could be on education, employment and training, sexual health advice, healthy eating or discuss emotions and feelings.


Whatever the need we are here to help. If the person best suited to help you isn't available, we can help you get connected.

If you just want a place to 'be', then that is OK too.


The type of people you may meet include:

  • counsellors

  • drug and alcohol workers

  • mental health and wellbeing support workers

  • sexual health advisors

  • smoking or alcohol advisors

  • public service professionals

  • training advisors

  • workers from other support services

  • sports coaches & activity instructors

  • youth workers
