Why we work for NAYC-ACUK

We believe that we are releasing potential in young people everyday
We believe that serving others is the greatest privilege.
We believe that the journey is better done together.
We believe in pushing the boundaries on possibility because we serve a God who can do the impossible.

The vision Harry Whittaker, Founder of NAYC & ACUK (Northamptonshire Association of Youth Clubs & Action Centres UK) saw in 1961, to change the face of youth work in Northampton has expanded to become the legacy that exists today. A legacy that includes a youth association that serves over 200 groups (NAYC, Northamptonshire), two purpose built activity centres (Pioneer, Shropshire & Whitemoor Lakes, Staffordshire), community sport facilities (King’s Park Sports, Northamptonshire) and a conference centre (King’s Park Conference Centre, Northamptonshire).

Harry Whittaker said: “Things matter, but people matter more.

That’s why success for us looks like…
Releasing potential in young people.
Releasing potential in their leaders.
Releasing potential in our staff.
