Mayfield & Easthouses Youth 2000 Project (Y2K)

Mayfield and Easthouses Youth 2000 Project, more commonly known as Y2K, is a small, youth-led, community project working with disadvantaged young people (11-18). Set up in 2000 by local businesses that recognised young people in the area had no place to ‘hang out’ or call their own, Y2K is still based in the old church manse which was given over by McSence to the community for youth services.

We currently work with over 500 individual young people each year, across a range of services that include informal drop-ins, single sex work, support for offenders as well as those identified as ‘at risk’ of offending, targeted group work and 1:1 supports.

All our services are devised and developed with and for the young people, offering them the opportunity, from the outset, to play active roles in their wider community. This is achieved through access to informal and alternative methods of education and training, undertaken voluntarily and at the individual’s pace.
