About Us

We provide a safe place for young people in the district to come for recreational activities, computer access, fitness, education, counselling and advice from trained professionals. We also provide an affordable venue for local groups and residents from the district to hire for fitness and social activities.

In June 2013, Wokingham Borough Council announced that all but two of their youth centres and clubs would have to close due to budget cuts. On July 2nd 2013 concerned residents and users of the centre came together to form the Twyford Youth Centre Steering Group which nominated seven trustees who, with the support of Wokingham Borough Council, established a new charitable incorporated organisation (CIO) called Twyford District Youth and Community Centre. This was formed in January 2014. Registered charity number: 1155243.

The charity has an 'association model' constitution which means that anyone interesting in furthering the charity's purposes can apply to become a member, giving them voting rights at general meetings and at the AGM - to be held annually in November. At the first AGM (November 2014) all the charity trustees will retire from office and members will be able to vote to re-elect or appoint new trustees.

We are actively seeking new members who would like to support Twyford District Youth and Community Centre. It was agreed at the general meeting on February 18th 2014 (minutes attached below) that an annual membership subscription charge would apply to adult and group members.
  • Young Person (under 25 years old at time of application or annual subscription renewal): No charge
  • Individual Membership: £10/year
  • Group/Organisation: £25/year
The subscription period will run from March to March, people joining part-way through the year will still need to pay the full amount.
