Stockport Action for Voluntary Youth, or ‘SAVY’ to those who know us best, closed its youth centre doors for the last time on Thursday 29th March 2018.

This is due to difficulty in securing core funding that we need to run the charity in a safe and professional manner. Since 1991 SAVY have had young people’s needs at the heart of all that we do and it is with deep regret, we announce an end to our Youth Work delivery across the borough of Stockport.

With an amazing team of professional Youth Workers we have enjoyed seeing young people flourish and develop in to young adults, becoming active citizens in their local communities.

On the behalf of the team and our Executive Committee, thank you to the partners and volunteers who have supported us throughout and to the children and young people who have put their faith in us for almost 30 years.

We are sharing our achievements and memories in our final newsletter:
