About HYP

Hayle Youth Project was born in 1997, when concerned local community members felt positive action was needed to meet the needs of local young people. The project has since grown in response. We now provide professional young person-led services throughout West Cornwall, achieving charity status in 2008.

We support young people in making positive life choices by providing fun diversionary activities that nurture a sense of self, self-belief and worth. We support young people in challenging situations and help support them in overcoming barriers they may face. We encourage young people to make positive social/political, emotional and physical choices and participate in community life.
