Each year, the Mayor of Seaford selects a charity to support during their term in office. This year, the Mayor of Seaford, Councillor Olivia Honeyman, has, in partnership with the Deputy Mayor, Young Mayor and Deputy Young Mayor, chosen a theme of Youth Promotion.

The Mayor's theme will highlight the importance of supporting younger generations of Seaford. The Mayor explains: “I have chosen Youth Promotion because younger people are the future of our town, and they need support now more than ever. In a recent survey conducted by the Town Council, it was highlighted that there needs to be more things available for younger people.”

In order to deliver the theme, the Mayor will support and promote the Mercread Youth Centre and The Youth Counselling Project as her chosen charities. When asked about her charity choices, she said: “Both the Mercread Youth Centre and The Youth Counselling Project are a huge asset to the youth of the town and are delivering important and vital services which I would like to give a platform to raise awareness and encourage the community to support them.”

The Mercread Youth Centre is host to a number of youth activities, and is looking to develop its facilities. The Centre is hoping to run a series of fundraising events with the support of the Mayor, to raise funds to renovate its kitchen. An improved and more practical kitchen would then be used to host community cooking classes for younger people. The Centre is also working on other initiatives for youth and networking opportunities for youth related groups and charities in the town. More information, and fundraising dates will be promoted in due course.

The Youth Counselling Project is an invaluable charity within our community which provides mental health support to younger people. The demand for The Youth Counselling Project’s services have significantly increased in the last couple of years, not only in numbers but in complexity. Many children are now presenting with issues that need longer than the standard ten sessions to support, putting extra pressure on The Youth Counselling Project’s service. They are also looking for new trustees, particularly anyone with experience in IT, web design and social media, or in counselling.

The Youth Counselling Project’s next planned fundraising event will be a pub quiz at The Old Plough on Tuesday the 7th of November 2023. 

The Mayor of Seaford is currently setting out plans for this municipal year. The first mayoral event will be the Civic Reception, which will showcase Youth Promotion, due to take place in October. Updates will be available on the Mayor of Seaford’s Facebook page and the Town Council’s website HERE.
