Youth project gets new home at Westmill Community Centre

16 February 2017

A youth project in Hitchin has moved into its new home at the recently opened Westmill Community Centre.

The Westmill Youth Project is delivered by Youth Connexions Hertfordshire (YCH), part of Hertfordshire County Council, and gives young people a secure and friendly environment in which they can make new friends and develop the skills needed to take them into adulthood. 

Among the programmes which will be delivered at the centre over the coming months are the Healthy Relationships Programme which focuses on building young people’s confidence in making safe and informed decisions about relationships.

The project will also focus on advising young people about internet safety and personal wellbeing.

Partner organisations will also be involved in the project and young people will get to shadow police officers and take a tour of a custody suite and a police van.

Projects currently run on Wednesdays and Fridays. For full details please visit
