About Us

Centre 63 was founded by the Church of England parish of Kirkby, to support young people from across the town with a safe place to go, build friendships, and to develop new skills. Throughout our 59-year history we have always continued to meet the needs of young people in Kirkby. To do this, we have had to be innovative and flexible, constantly with our ear to the ground but with eyes open to new opportunities and challenges.

Young people have remained at the core of what we do and through our 59 years of operation we have broadened our activities in recognition of the wider needs of families, as well as young people within our community. We offer services such as housing/debt advice and advocacy, access to benefits, employability support, practical help with food poverty, upcycling skills programme, access grants for furniture and household goods, provide targeted youth activities, mentoring and volunteering.
