Urban Circle Newport

Company overview

Urban Circle Newport is a fully constituted charity organisation based within Newport City Centre. We are one of the biggest youth initiatives outside of Council led Projects in South Wales.

Urban Circle first started life as Urban Circle Radio based in Pillgwenlly 13 years ago and we have had huge success in uniting the young people of Newport across many cultures, backgrounds and interests and allowed for endless possibilities to impact and positively effect lives.

Our Organisation aims to help build, promote and sustain constructive community relationships and individual capability for young people living in the different areas of Newport. Also, helping build relations between these young people in different communities, across a variety of platforms from performing arts to creative media (music, dance and multimedia).

Opportunities for young people

All of the Urban Circle Projects are rapidly becoming a beacon of hope for hundreds of young people. We provide them with an opportunity to develop and showcase their talents for the mutual benefit of local communities, whilst having fun in a creative and innovative environment.

It also directly impacts on reducing social exclusion, anti-social behaviour and increasing civic pride all through the application of youth work principles. At Urban Circle Newport, there is something for everyone; whatever their ability and level.
