The St Helier Youth & Community Trust was established in 2016.
It replaced the previously Parish administered St Helier Youth Committee. The objective was to broaden the remit of the previous Youth Committee to include all segments of society. Particular focus on the youth of the Parish remains a strong element of the work of the Trust. However, other vulnerable groups such as the elderly, disabled and other disadvantaged groups have become a new focus.
The Trust also acts as a channel for charitable giving for social projects in the Parish of St Helier which are not otherwise provided by the municipality, for the benefit of all parishioners. Projects are designed to be tangible and provide a lasting legacy to the benefactors.
The St Helier Youth and Community Trust (‘the SHYCT’) works closely with the States Youth Service and community groups to give help and financial support to various projects throughout the Parish. It is responsible for allocating grants to groups and also individuals.
