Summer Fetes Hub: Corner Unit,  Millennium Place Youth Focus: North East

Youth Focus: North East is a regional hub connecting young people and the organisations and professionals who support them.

Established in 1989, Youth Focus: North East is an award winning organisation working with young people from across the region. We also support a network of over 1500 organisations and individuals concerned with improving the lives of young people. For nearly 30 years, we have delivered projects with young people and professionals across the North East, receiving both regional and national recognition for the innovation and quality of our work.

For many years, we have worked with, and supported youth organisations and young people from County Durham. We are keen to extend our links in the county, and we would welcome the chance to talk to young people who may be interested in volunteering, or being part of one of our many social action projects.


Reuse not Recycle Competition: We will be running a competition throughout the week awarding prizes to the most creative containers you can design.  Think about reusing rather than recycling an old tin, plastic bottle, pair of wellies, broken kettle etc and create something fun and unique to plant flowers and vegetables in this summer. Why not paint up a pot, jazz up a jar and create something TREE-menous to use!  Bring your finished planter to our planting events during the week and receive free seed and compost or pick up a plant at one of the plant sales on Elvet Bridge.We will award prizes for “best in show” to both children and adults so get your thinking caps on and get creative!
