Below are just some of the examples of work we do with our local community. Humberside Youth Association are proud to provide community groups who impact on young people’s lives and young individuals themselves a chance to flourish by offering funding support. Due to the high number of applications we receive we cannot guarantee support to all community groups/ individuals but we do carefully select our successful applicants with justified reasoning.
After successfully applying for our grant with Humberside Youth Association, West Marsh Development Trust have been able to purchase a variety of apparatus for their new gym.
After 6 months, the project is already a great success, with at least 20 people inlcuding children and over 50s using the gym per week. The gym's aim is to give users a place to use the gym without them facing any difficulites they may face in a mainstream gym such as low esteem or shyness.

We would like to wish all of the group the best of luck on their future camping adventures.
West Marsh Development Trust operate a community centre for the benefit of the people living in West Marsh. West Marsh is one of the two most deprived areas in the North East Lincolnshire in terms of attainment and health and wellbeing, especially amongst young people. Within the area, there is a lack of facilities available for young people which consequently leaves people with little to do to entertain themselves.
West Marsh Development Trust wanted to fund a gymnasium and general fitness facility with the intention of bringing in more varied individuals including those with limited exposure to sporting activities.
To show our support, we were able to provide funding for the trust that provided items such as:
An individual created a project called Graffiti Animals to bring together young artists interested in expressing their ideas and turning them into art. The project was to teach young people how to turn graffiti into street art by creating weekly workshops that allowed young people to share ideas, design and create artwork as a group.
Humberside Youth Association were happy to provide funding for the project providing a venue, graffiti artist and paints.
