Morningside Youth Club was formed in 1999 by a group of local residents who were concerned at the lack of positive activities available for young people on Morningside Estate.
In 2004 we became Gascoyne & Morningside Youth Clubs, opening up a second youth club on the Gascoyne Estate. Our founding members, Nicolette Nixon and Bill Gallagher remain actively involved in the running of the youth club.
The organisation has grown and gone from strength to strength, becoming a Company in 2009 and in March 2021 a Charity known as H.O.P.E. In April 2021 we took on the Management of the Morningside Community Centre, thus expanding our activities and welcoming the whole community.
H.O.P.E will incorporate Gascoyne & Morningside Youth Clubs and will be run by Trustees and a Management Board. This will ensure that all voices within the community are listened to and heard. Whilst H.O.P.E. is a new charity as an organisation we have been active in the community for over 20 years and our aim is to continue to offer a high level of community cohesion for all members of our community.
