YOUthquake - Burley in Wharfedale

Youth services in Burley in Wharfedale.

1999 saw the sale of Burley’s Youth Club, as it had fallen into a state of disrepair. Since that time, little if any consideration had been given to Burley’s 11 to 18-year-olds, by successive district and parish councils.

In late 2018, a few 11 to 18-year-olds voiced concerns that they felt a lack of belonging to our community and disappointment about the lack of youth facilities and activities in which they could get involved after school in the early evening.

This was the primary driver to re-establish a youth service within the community, not only to cater for our 11 to 18-year-olds, but to also support those who have left school to find work in the 18 to 25-year-old age group.

What is Youthquake?

Youthquake was created to help bridge that gap in 2018. Youthquake provide a once a week opportunity (Wednesday’s between 4.00pm and 6.00pm) for our 11 to 18 year olds to meet, make friends and get involved in activities at the Queens Hall, Main Street, Burley in Wharfedale (see map).

Three young people – Callum, Ellie & Jack – and Loraine took their idea of a youth initiative for the village to Burley in Wharfedale Community Trust who helped make youthquake reality.

Supporting 18 to 25 year olds.

We work with young people across a wide range of situations to ensure inclusion, including those at risk of exclusion, or already excluded, from school or society – those with disabilities, in care and Not in Education, Employment, or Training (NEET.)

Safeguarding Children

Youthquake, like other organisations that work with or come into contact with children have safeguarding policies and procedures to ensure that every child, regardless of their age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation, has a right to equal protection from harm. Our safeguarding policies and procedures mean that children are safe from adults and other children who might pose a risk whilst they are with us.

We have a team of village resident volunteers who have completed safeguarding training and who have been DBS checked by Bradford Council Bradford Youth Services.

See the NSPCC website for further information about Safeguarding.

Our Safeguarding policy is available to download here.
