Whitehaven Harbour Youth Project

The Project began in 1996.  At that time Whitehaven (situated in the borough of Copeland) had embarked upon a process of significant redevelopment, particularly the transformation of its industrial harbour into a marina and tourist attraction.  Some funding was made available to establish WHYP so that young people would have a stake in the changes that were occurring in their town.  The project was based in Pears House on the harbour which was shared with the Harbour Commissioners.  It was managed by representatives of the local Police, Social Services, the Probation Service, the Educational Welfare Service and Clubs for Young People.  It provided outdoor activities for young people and also a youth club.  In 2008 the project moved to its current venue.
