Sidmouth Youth Centre

We aim to…

  • Establish a quality and robust youth service for the young people of Sid Valley.
  • Improve community cohesion and build stronger relationships between young people and the wider community.
  • Create a safe space where young people can learn, enjoy and develop healthier, happier lives.

The Sidmouth Youth Centre is run by Young Devon; a young people’s charity in the South West of England.
At Young Devon we have been finding new and different ways to help young people thrive since 1949. We are proud to help thousands of young people every year and are looking forward to putting young people at the heart of Devon for the next 70 years.
We have four key areas of delivery which include Skills, Accommodation, Wellbeing and Voice.

Visit our website to find out how we deliver these to support young people!


In 2016, Sidmouth Town Council took the proactive approach to offer some form of youth provision for the young people of the Sid Valley.
Through this hard work and conjoined effort,Young Devon and Sidmouth Town Council have developed a robust youth strategy and now deliver a quality youth service for local young people in Sidmouth Youth Centre.
