Poster Campaign Launch

We are proud and excited to announce the launch of our first ever outdoor poster campaign to raise awareness of the work we do and to engage more supporters to help make a difference.

Everyone has heard of the North East legends that are Ant & Dec and Alan Shearer but did you know they went to clubs run by NE Youth when they were young? We’ve been helping young people across the region for over 80 years and 2018 we are focusing on recruiting new supporters to get involved and help make a difference.

With the help of Clear Channel and their generous donation of all the media space and Halo Paywear who have sponsored the campaign NE Youth brand will be seen by thousands of people across the region over the next couple of months.

Jon Niblo, CEO of NE Youth said:

‘ This is a fantastic opportunity for NE Youth, smaller charities like ours don’t ever get the chance to run big advertising campaigns because it cost so much. With the support of Clear Channel and Halo Paywear our brand will be seen by 1000s of people across the region. We’ve earmarked 2018 as the year to turn the volume up around our work and let more people know about the work we do with young people- this campaign is great start’

Martin Hall from Halo Paywear added:

‘Halo Paywear are delighted to support this fantastic campaign. Its perfect timing as we are just about to launch our new product.’

(The Halo Wristband is a waterproof, safe & secure contactless payment device which you simply “top up”. It’s ideal for the beach, the pool, the skate park, public transport, shops….in fact it works anywhere with a contactless terminal, and can be used whether you are a teenager or a pensioner, or anybody in between!)

Over the next couple of months the new campaign posters will be up around Newcastle and surrounding areas. NE Youth encourages anyone who sees them to take a minute to learn more about the work we do and also take a selfie and post it on social media.


Sara’s Cambodia to Vietnam Blog

On the 19th October four members of the NE Youth team (Bruce, Ray, Peter and Sara) set off on an adventure after 8 long months of planning, fundraising and training. The aim was to cycle 450 miles from Siem Reap in Cambodia to Ho Chi Min City in Vietnam in order to raise funds for NE Youth member organisation Smile for Life. Funds would go towards setting up a new café where young people with learning disabilities could gain confidence, meet new people and gain real life work experience preparing food and drinks and serving customers…
