Welcome to our Website
We hope you will find what you're looking for whether it is information on our youth centres or inspiration for your school's outdoor learning programme.
West View Project has existed since 1980 when a group was formed by a group of residents who wanted to create somewhere children in the local area could play safely. This aim still sits at the core of the organisation & our Miers Avenue youth centre is open 5 evenings per week catering for young people aged 5 to 19. As is the case with a lot of groups like WVP over the years we have received funding to deliver & develop more specialist work. We’ve always ensured this work compliments or supports the delivery of our youth centres.
If you can't find what you are looking for you can contact us either by telephone during our office opening hours (8:30am - 5:00pm) or by emailing us. You will find more detail about specific contacts for activities & services on their related pages. We welcome feedback on the site and our activities and you're welcome to get in touch with comments or suggestions.
