The Port of Milford Haven and Milford Youth Matters (MYM) have recently expanded their long-running partnership. The two organisations are committed to creating opportunities for young people in the town of Milford Haven and are coming together this year to deliver an extended range of services, activities and events.
Milford Youth Matters is now able to provide youth provision every Friday night throughout school holidays, in addition to its term-time service, thanks to a financial donation by the Port of Milford Haven. By providing an indoor venue and use of its land around Milford Waterfront the Port has also enabled MYM to offer a targeted, detached service for young people aged 11-18.
The Port of Milford Haven has worked in collaboration with Milford Youth Matters for a number of years, delivering award winning events such as Wave and Under the Bridge. Its partnership aims to change perceptions, reduce anti-social behaviour, increase community safety and support young people in having a voice in order to shape their futures.
Dayle Gibby, Milford Youth Matters co-ordinator commented:
“It is very exciting to be working with the Port again this year. Together we have delivered some amazing projects for the local youth community, and being able to continue that is brilliant. We are very grateful that the Port recognises the importance of youth engagement, and is eager to support it. We have some incredible young people in our community, and our work with the Port enables us to help unlock that potential.”
Anna Malloy, Stakeholder Engagement and Communications Manager for the Port of Milford Haven added:
“We are very pleased to be able to support Dayle and the team at Milford Youth Matters. The work they do is very important for our community, and they are playing a vital role as a delivery partner for our youth engagement activities throughout the year. Together we are looking forward to supporting young people to achieve their potential.”
