Banbury Youth & Community Enterprise became a registered C.I.C (community interest company) in November 2019. It has been created through many hours of voluntary work by a few hard working women in the Banbury community.
BYCE began as a support group for women facing difficulties with their teenagers, due to the social issues that effect young people in Banbury, one of them being County Lines drug exploitation. With the help of funding from a few local organisations it has grown to now having 2 active projects and 2 more ready to begin. These projects are targeted to help those not receiving support elsewhere and use vital early intervention strategies to guide and support accessing other services. Whilst we are extremely grateful for the funding that we have received, it is hard to access funds for everything we need due to high demand.
We are growing, which is excellent! However, in order to continue to grow we now need to raise vital funds for our IT system to upgrade and meet our demands. We have had a system quote from an excellent local IT support company and 100% of the money raised will be used to pay for this.
With a little help we we can continue to grow these services that are so vital to our community and we are happy to say that we are already seeing great results in terms of people that we are working with. Our projects are designed to support and empower those who are in need.......if you feel that you could help with this cause then we would be very grateful.
