Support comes in many ways. If you would like to support us in a practical way, we have an extensive volunteers’ network which utilises the gifts and talents of literally hundreds of people throughout the year in various different ways. For more information on how you can support CYESC with your time and talents, please go to the ‘Volunteers’ section at the foot of the page for further information.


As a Christian organisation, we very much believe in the power of prayer. This really does underpin everything that we do at CYESC and we collectively believe that God looks after and provides for us. This has been clearly evident over the past 30 years. There are always specific things that we need prayer about so either have a look at the blog/latest news section or feel free to call the Centre and ask specifically for any guidance. If you would like to receive monthly Prayer Essentials by email please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
