Welcome to AYCC
We are a vibrant local community hub… welcoming children, young people and families on the Woodhouse Close estate, the wider Bishop Auckland area and beyond.
Our mission is to support local children, young people and families with opportunities to widen their horizons. We do this through a range of activities, events and learning experiences.
Through our work, we aim to enhance community provision on Woodhouse Close estate, and beyond. AYCC’s activity programme will continue to develop in response to local need. New users are welcome… what types of activities do YOU most want to see?
We are always looking for new volunteers to support our work. Extra pairs of hands would help us to deliver existing projects and also start up new activities. We have lots of events planned for 2017 for which we would really appreciate voluntary support.
Please contact us on 01388 604575 for more details!
