Children & Youth in Community

~ empowerment, belonging and engagement








Children & Youth in Community – “CYC” for short – is a Findhorn Foundation Community voluntary association set up in June 2012, continuing the work previously held by the New Findhorn Association (NFA), Findhorn Bay Youth Project (YP) and Findhorn Foundation over the past 40 years.

We are based in the Findhorn Foundation Community & Learning Centre – The Park, Findhorn, Moray, NE Scotland and we run activities and programmes for local children & young people within the beautiful landscape of our community and ecovillage.

We are affiliated to and insured by Youth Scotland.

The CYC is sponsored by the New Findhorn Association membership and supported by private donors, local fundraising initiatives and at times funding bodies such as Awards for All Scotland.
