We are refurbishing The Waterside Centre in Newbury and need YOUR help!

We propose to refurbish the building to provide:

  • A state-of-the-art facility for the young people of Newbury: a youth club, activities, a safe space
  • A community building available for clubs and societies
  • A valued asset for the Newbury community - encompassing a climbing wall, hall, dance studio and water based activities

The Waterside Centre

How can I help?


We need an additional £700,000 to complete this state-of-the-art youth services facility.

If you would like to donate to our project to refurbish the Waterside Centre, please visit the Berkshire Youth Trust Go Fund Me page here or our fundraising page on The Good Exchange.



We hope that the West Berkshire community will be as excited as we are about this project.
