The Door Youth Project

The Door Exists Because every young person and their parents need to feel safe, happy and valued, with the best possible opportunity to reach their potential.

Founded 1991

  • Mission statement

    The Door is a Christian-based youth project, established in 1991 for the benefit of all young people aged 11 to 25 and their families. We pride ourselves on being a needs-led organisation, working closely with young people, parents, carers or whole families to offer the right support for them.

    We have been a positive influence in the lives of so many disaffected, despondent and disconnected people. Whether it be a parent who feels they are alone in the difficulties they are facing, an 18 year old finding it hard to get a job, or an 11 year old who can’t cope in secondary school we are able to make a difference.

    We have long been regarded as the leading service for young people and their families across the district, and work closely with statutory services and other voluntary organisations.

    Our Youth Work team exists because young people need the safety and security of non-judgemental role models, to guide their development into positive members of society. Our youth centres provide a safe place for young people to hang-out and engage with trained staff, activities and informal education programmes. We also operate detached youth work.

    Light at The Door Family Support Services exists because too many young people and parents need extra stability and help during periods of personal or family crisis. We provide a range of intervention programmes including 1:1 mentoring, whole family support and parenting training.
