The Evelyn Trust recently supported the renovation of Centre 33 on Clarendon Street, Cambridge. The charity – which supports young people in tackling issues and challenges in their lives – undertook the much-needed renovation as part of its 30th birthday.

Centre 33 is dedicated to providing free and accessible information, counselling, services and support to disadvantaged and disaffected young people aged 8-25 in Cambridgeshire to enable them to overcome the effects of poor health, isolation, disadvantage and inequality so as to achieve their potential.

Responding to growing demands on its services, Centre 33 has increased and adapted the range and frequency of its services and expanded its staff team. In 1981, Centre 33 had a reach of a few hundred young people with a staff of a few volunteers and a single manager; today it reaches over 4,500 young people a year, with a staff team of 24 and volunteer team of 50.

The much-needed renovation includes a young people's drop-in and information area, and a dedicated space for counselling rooms. The work was carried out with the input of the young people who use the service to make sure the changes met their needs and ideas.

As a result Centre 33 now boasts a safe, welcoming and contemporary atmosphere in a building that can respond to the needs of thousands of young people in Cambridgeshire and enable them to achieve their potential.
