East Durham City Youth Scheme (EDYs) provides ground-breaking youth work to the communities of Gilesgate, Sherburn and Shadforth in County Durham.
In our community, EDYs:
- Does Detached youth work in Gilesgate, Sherburn & Sherburn Hill
- Runs the weekly drop-in youth club ‘SCUFFs’ in Shadforth
- Delivers Messy Church in Sherburn Village
- Has conversations with young people to boost their confidence, leadership & life skills
- Networks with community groups to help improve the lives of the young people in our city and villages.
How is EDYs funded?
EDYs is funded exclusively through grant funding and donations. We’re trying to raise money to allow our youth and community worker to sustain & develop the work that they are doing in all of our communities.
