About Us

Consett Churches Detached Youth Project Consett Churches Detached Youth Project (CCDYP) was launched in 1981 following the closure of the Steel Company and subsequent closure of the coal mines in the Consett and Derwentside areas.

Unemployment brought with it many problems, family break ups, depression, drink/drug abuse mental health and anti-social behaviour.  The main concern of our founders was for the young people in the area and their futures.

Today there is very little change in circumstances, although new employers came into the area not many stayed and unemployment is still very high particularly amongst young people.  We mainly work in the villages surrounding Consett where there is very little or in some cases no youth provision, leaving the young people feeling disenfranchised and “left our” of their communities.

Emphasis is placed on improving the quality of life, raising self-esteem, new learning skills, physical and emotional wellbeing. Our workers listen to their needs in relation to social, health and education, facilitating them in attaining their personal goals.

We also offer help and support for young people who are searching for jobs, CV writing, crisis support or even just a friendly face to chat to.
