About

supporting Young People

Whitton Youth Partnership supports and works with children and young people in the Whitton, Whitehouse and Castle Hill areas of Ipswich.

We do this through spending time in the community every day, meeting, listening to and talking with young people and developing further activities together, such as trips and residentials, projects, workshops, accredited learning, volunteering and community action.

A registered charity, we were established in 2014 to provide much-needed services for socially and economically disadvantaged children & young people in the Whitton, Whitehouse & Castle Hill areas of Ipswich, Suffolk.

We offer young people up to 19 years somewhere safe to meet and participate in activities that build relationships, develop confidence and foster learning.
We also provide information, advice and guidance on various issues that affect young people.

We believe all young people deserve to be treated with respect and dignity and that each can create, reflect, enjoy, achieve and make a positive difference in their world.
