About Centre for Youth & Community Development (CYCD)

CYCD is a community facility set in the heart of the Bury Park area of Luton which runs projects to meet the needs of the community. We operate under the auspices of the Bangladesh Youth League (Charity number 1109719) and Bengali Women’s Project and as well as running and managing projects with Bangladesh Youth League and Bengali Women’s Project we also support a number of small community organisations who use our facilities. These include Little Stars Pre-school, Crescent Summer School Project, Access Disability Project, BASSES (Biscot After-school Supplementary Education & Support), Khidmat Health & Well-being and Ujala Health & Well-being, all of whom are independent community organisations.

Our CYCD website includes information about the projects run by these organisations which we support. If you need more information please contact us through the Contact us page at the top of the website or by clicking the Contact Us.
