Mersey Youth Support Trust is opening a 2nd Business Hub to help change the lives of young and disadvantaged entrepreneurs on the Wirral

by Kevin Lovelady in Wallasey, Merseyside, United Kingdom

Mersey Youth Support Trust (MYST) is a charity based in the Liverpool City Region which aims to change the lives of young and disadvantaged people over the age of 18 across Merseyside by offering them the unique opportunity to start their own business

There are a growing number of young and disadvantaged people across the Liverpool City Region who are experiencing the detrimental effects of being trapped in long term unemployment - dealing with financial hardship, ongoing mental health battles and more with no real way out.

Mersey Youth Support Trust (MYST) provides vital support to these young and disadvantaged people by giving them a route out through enterprise and self employment.

Since 2012 we have helped over 225 start up businesses who have created over 480 jobs for people just like them.

We now need help and support as we continue to proactively tackle the growing numbers of unemployed young and disadvantaged people by opening our second dedicated Business Hub  by refurbishing first floor office space in Birkenhead/Wallasey.


This will enable us to:-

● Support up to 28 start up businesses by providing affordable individual offices and craft workshops 1632311852_officespace.jpg

● Provide specialist mentoring by our team of trained staff

Educate young and disadvantaged people on the benefits of self employment by holding open days and workshops

● Give individuals the opportunity to become part of a small business community


The new Hub will be very similar to our Kirkdale Business Hub where we have been hugely successful in supporting a diverse range of individuals to become financially independent, increase their skill set and start their own business.

Our aim is to also make the new Hub as environmentally-friendly as possible as well as ensuring it responds to the digital and connectivity requirements of today's business.

We have appointed a team who are ready to begin work to get the centre ready for opening - we really hope that you are able to contribute and support us to help move the project forward and invest in the next generation of entrepreneurs.
