Malvern Youth and Community Trust came out of a collective which formed spontaneously in response to a move by Worcestershire County Council to close Malvern Youth Centre as part of a cost saving plan to close down all youth centres across the County. The collective campaigned for over a year to save the youth centre and restore it into the hands of the community. In November 2011, the County Council agreed to lease the building to the collective on a long term basis.
Since then, Trustees have worked with partners to create the thriving community centre that is Malvern Cube. Our inter-generational strategy has enabled us to continue to offer an exciting programme of activities for young people – the starting point for all our endeavours – as well as a whole host of other exciting events and activities.
We are now building on our first 5 successful years and watching Malvern Cube go from strength to strength.
