Newhill Youth & Community Centre
Newhill Youth and Community Centre exists to provide high quality services to children, young people and their families, through identified community need. Newhill operates in the Upper Springfield area of West Belfast which a highly disadvantaged community. Over the years the centre has established itself as a dynamic and important local facility. Our activities are wide ranging and help support our community’s diverse needs. In 2008 we applied and were successful in accessing funding for the centre to be completely refurbished with support from the Department of Education. This refurbishment has allowed us to open our centre seven days a week.
At present we organise: an ‘Out of School Club’, youth club, sports and fitness group, drama and dance groups, arts groups, and the 50+ groups involved in many intergenerational projects. The centre employs at present eight staff P/T through various initiatives including the Steps Ahead programme. We have 20 volunteers that work across all programmes within Newhill and in the community.
