Youth Services

St Anthony's Youth Education and Support (SAYES) are proud of the contribution that our current programme of activities is making to help local young people grow to maturity with the skills they need to become well adjusted, happy and confident adults.

Over the years we have built and grown our links with Building Futures East, an organisation who concentrates its activity in the areas of social enterprise and vocational skills training as a vehicle for community regeneration:

St Anthony of Padua Community Association has provided a long-term commitment to the youth project and we are grateful for the support from local people and grant funders over the years who have helped us provide a service where:

  • young people can belong and feel valued
  • young people's potential to succeed is identified and encouraged through person centred support from dedicated, well trained staff
  • Where young people have opportunities to experience new activities and participate in a community characterised by respect
  • Our services and activities are characterised by the highest standards possible and where the ethos of equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice is upheld to the highest level

St Anthony’s youth work in health, education and development in the East End of Newcastle upon Tyne has recently received a welcome and needy support from the Simon Bates Foundation with a cheque for £10,000.

This donation will support work in the youth centre with food and healthy living for our young people, as well as introducing young people to learning and training along their personal journey of development.
