Youth service secures funding for another year

The town council has agreed to provide funding for Penryn Youth Service to enable them to continue running for another year.

The service, run by the Dracaena Centre, was piloted in Falmouth last year to help improve young people’s lives and reduce crime and anti-social behaviour.

At a previous meeting in October 2015, it was decided that £6,750 would be needed to continue the service and a suitable venue was being sought for meetings in Penryn.


The council agreed that the Old Gentlemen’s Shelter on Quay Hill was available and a suitable venue for the Young Women’s Café.

Other services provided by the youth service include drop-in sessions offering advice on housing, relationships and finances.
