“The Tanyard Youth Project Ltd exists to provide an excellent standard of facilities, activities and services for all young people in a safe, welcoming, educational and inspirational environment in order to enable them to develop physically, mentally and spiritually; becoming in turn, mature members of society and positive citizens of the community”.
The Tanyard Youth Project has been in existence since 1998. It was formed by a partnership of volunteers from the community who saw the need to provide inclusive leisure and learning opportunities for young people from the community. The Tanyard Youth Project serves young people who live in Pembroke and Pembroke Dock as well as disparate rural village communities. Two of these areas are amongst the highest ‘areas of deprivation’ in Great Britain (Monkton and Llanion).
The aim of the project is to provide a safe, caring, and friendly environment to all young people regardless of their ability, disability, gender, race, creed, colour, sexual orientation, religion or social disposition. The project offers an alternative to the possibilities of petty theft, vandalism, substance misuse, alcohol misuse and anti-social behaviour.
The majority of young people we work with are from identified areas of deprivation. They often come from a culture of violence, binge drinking, drugs, unemployment, parents with lack or no knowledge of health & wellbeing, which results in low levels of aspiration, goal setting and self esteem.
The Tanyard Youth Project aims to:
- To provide a safe, welcoming and supportive environment for the children and young people of Pembroke and its surrounding areas.
- To enable young people to make positive and constructive use of their leisure time and to access information, advice and support on a wide range of issues that affect them.
