About Us

A little history

Hayle Youth Project was born in 1999 when our local community needed positive action to improve the lives of its young people.

The project expanded in response to increasing demand and we are now the leading youth service in West Cornwall. We provide professional services for schools, pupil referral units and families in need of support. We achieved our charity status in 2008 and have grown from strength to strength. The young people we work with are the heart of everything we do. 


HYP Charitable Objectives:

  • Promote inclusion 
  • Challenge discrimination
  • Motivate, inspire, challenge
  • Provide informal learning opportunities 
  • Support young people in achieving their full potential in a safe, professional setting

Our mission

We believe every young person can reach their full potential when motivated, challenged and supported.

What we do:

Building confidence

We want young people to be healthy, feel happy and realise their self-worth. We provide fun, challenging activities that develop skills and build confidence – empowering young people to take responsibility in their lives.


Through our mentoring programme, we nurture self-esteem and support young people in making positive life choices. We help them navigate challenging situations and overcome barriers.

Community & engagement

We encourage young people to make positive social, emotional and physical choices, engage in their community and improve their communication skills.
