Malvern Cube Projects received £15,000 boost to provide youth activities to 10 to 18-year-olds

THE MALVERN Cube Projects, which provides youth services to young people aged 10 to 18, has had a fantastic start to the new year, receiving grants of almost £15,000 to help it deliver its activities and a new programme.

The Eveson Trust granted the organisation £10,000 to support with the year’s running costs, especially those related to three of wellbeing focused groups.

Sessions include Checkmate and Thrive, the project’s dedicated boys’ and girls’ social groups, and Voltage, a social group for young people with ASD.




Worcestershire Community First, in partnership with The National Lottery and the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, has provided a £4,862 grant as part of the #iwill Youth Social Action Programme.

The funding will be spent this year on an exciting project in the weekly Youth Cafe session.


The young people will learn to grow and cook their own produce and will also develop their clothing re-use and upcycling skills.

Malvern Cube Projects, based at Malvern Cube and formed in 2016 as a charity, delivers a varied programme of term-time activities as well as events and trips during school holidays.

The project also delivers mentoring for young people at The Chase High School and will be holding sessions in Morrisons Cafe and at The Octagon this term.

The activities are free and currently around 80 people attend each week.

The growing charity aims to empower young people to be resilient and fulfill their potential through providing positive activities for young people which promote wellbeing, encourage self-esteem and develop confidence.

A safe space has been created where young people feel secure and can build supportive networks with peers.

The charity also strives to give young people a voice, allowing them to shape provision and to engage with wider issues.

Current activities include weekly accessible exercise sessions, dedicated boys’ and girls’ social and wellbeing groups, a social session for young people with Autism, a group for young members of the LGBTQ+ community and a very popular weekly Youth Cafe where hot meals and a variety of activities are provided for the young people.

Youth Manager Jo Hine said: “We are beyond delighted to receive this funding which will enable us to further enhance and extend what we can offer to the young people of Malvern.

“Thank you so much to The Eveson Trust and the iWill programme.’
