About The Charity...

Our Mission

Everyone in our community is able to live healthy, fulfilled and connected lives

Our Vision

To be the best example of a community anchor organisation that:

  • Focusses on local solutions and action

  • Enables people to improve their health & wellbeing

  • Enables people to live connected lives

NCYC is the Neston based charity that delivers and supports services for local people.  We also operate Neston Community Youth Centre and Neston Civic Hall

There has  been a community owned building on the site of Burton Road since 1964.  Originally a Youth Centre, providing activities for children and young people, the old building eventually fell into disrepair and was demolished in 2004.  Local community leaders worked with Ellesmere Port and Neston Borough Council to redevelop the site into a multi use community facility that could be used all day, every day.

The building (above) has been open since January 2007 when the new charity was formed.  Since then the offer within this building has developed to include the provision of a Job Centre, Children's Centre, Foodbank, Citizens Advice access point and the charity has developed alongside it.  The charity delivers a range of services including a befriending service, social prescribing service, community cinema and supports many of the much loved community events including Neston Ladies Club Day, Neston Village Fair, The Big Lunch, Neston Earth Festival and  Christmas Lights Switch on and Lantern Parade.

In January 2022, the charity signed a lease with Cheshire West and Chester Council to take over the operation of Neston Civic Hall, the home of Neston Flicks, bringing a much loved community asset back to life having been closed for almost two years.
