Project Information

Ieuenctid Tysul Youth (ITY) is a voluntary youth organisation and registered charity based here at the Tysul Youth Centre, Llandysul. The organisation was established in 1995 following a community appraisal which highlighted a lack of provision for young people in the Llandysul area.

The building was transformed from Peniel Wesleyan Chapel to purpose built Youth Centre with financial help from the Big Lottery Fund, The Tudor Trust and Ceredigion County Council. The project took four years to complete and cost £261,000 in total.

During the last 8 years, our purpose has evolved to provide a wide range of education and support services to young people aged 10-25 years. The main focus of our work is to support young people through the transition to adulthood – from dependence to independence.

What we offer is a valuable service in an under resourced part of Wales. We work towards improving the quality of life and range of opportunities available to young people.

The organisation is managed by a dedicated committee made up of local people, all of whom have the best interests of young people at heart. We employ six trained part-time staff and we are always grateful for the support of volunteers. We provide an evening youth club, a daytime drop-in facility for young people not in school, and a minibus ‘pick up and drop off’ service for those living in the satellite villages.

Our work hinges around personal and social development and we are guided by the Youth Work Curriculum for Wales. We work with the Statutory Youth Service and take part in activities with other youth groups, local community & environmental projects and volunteering projects further afield. Young people are encouraged to participate and to be actively involved in decision making processes. Whenever possible we provide a bilingual service and young people converse in which ever language they choose.

We are a member of Wales Council for Voluntary Action, Youth Cymru, CAVO (Ceredigion Association of Voluntary Organisations), Ceredigion Youth Organisations Forum and Llandysul & Pontweli Ymlaen.
