Donate to Berkshire Youth charity

Berkshire Youth is funded solely by donations and support from individuals and companies. With your support and generosity, we help over 12,000 young people each year, providing them with things to do and places to go. You can donate through JustGiving, Localgiving and CAF Donate using the links below.

Will you support us?

Last summer, we reopened our refurbished Waterside Centre – our third flagship facility which is based in Newbury. The centre has already featured on local TV, radio, newspapers and more. Please click here to see these on our YouTube channel.

We have already welcomed thousands of people to this youth and community centre, and it is fast becoming a popular hub for local young people and the wider community.

Waterside Centre is:

  • 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

How can I help?


We still need to raise nearly £200,000 to pay for the centre’s transformation.

If you would like to donate, please visit our fundraising page on The Good Exchange here. Your donation will be doubled when donating via this link thanks to match funding from Greenham Trust, ie every £1 you donate will become a £2 donation.

Call to Action!
