Who Are We?

NESYFC is a "local centre" or chartered ministry under British Youth for Christ, which is in turn affiliated to YFC International. We are an independent Scottish registered charity (no SC018031), operating under a charter agreement with BYFC which is renewed every three years. This arrangement allows us to tailor our work to be relevant to the young people of the area while still having access to the resources of a national organisation.

Our work is largely performed by volunteers working in their spare time, in conjunction with our full time youth worker. It is managed by a team of ministry co-ordinators called the Steering Group (formerly Executive Committee) which also includes our charity trustees. The work is overseen by mature Christians who sit on the Advisory Body (formerly Council of Reference), whose job is to bring accountability and credibility to the organisation. As an non-denominational Christian body, we are structured to have representatives of multiple denominations and backgrounds on the Council of Reference, giving insight and wisdom to the Executive Committee. All our volunteers and staff subscribe to the British YFC Statement of Faith.
