CHAIRMANS REPORT
My second year of tenure has certainly been an eventful one, however the commitment of staff and trustees has shone through, and with hard work we managed to implement several significant changes for the better. The most notable challenge was the departure of Simon Hills as Chief Executive, and after 5 years in the role we wish him well. This left a significant gap in our Senior Management Team, which provided an opportunity to review the organisation and ensure it remained fit for purpose. As a result, David Sharp was promoted to the role of Chief Executive. and strategies for fundraising and marketing, as well as allowing work with external specialists. The outdoor centre continued to go from strength to strength this year, with over 5,500 young people involved in activity. Our marketing efforts are proving their worth and there have also been some improvements to domestic facilities based on customer comments.

The Youth Development Team have been working hard to support provision for young people across the county and were successfully involved in the initial stages of recruitment for the Governments flagship youth proDavids first change was to relocate the gramme, the National Citizenship Administration and Youth Support teams Service for Summer 2012. to Carlton Lodge.

An award from the Transition Fund subsequently provided resources to establish the roles of Business Development Manager and Customer Relations Manager. These two posts were subsequently integrated into the current team on a permanent basis a move which continues to produce significant results. I would like to thank all our staff for the effort and teamwork they have shown, and for helping in no small way to change the lives of our clients. I would also thank board members for their wise counsel and continuing enthusiasm. We will continue to run the operation as a successful business, and will spend some time this winter looking at new product development.

CARLTON LODGE OUTDOOR CENTRE


201112 has been a year of consolidation and transformation at Carlton Lodge. We have made significant progress in replacing lost business from last year. New customers include Millthorpe School from York who brought 118 pupils in the last week of the summer term. Because we could only offer 98 beds in accommodation we housed the overflow in two twenty-man scout tents, providing the students with sleeping bags, mats and pillows - our first foray into catered camping packages. Another School from York, Manor CE Schools came on 3 consecutive 3-day inclusive packages, each with 72 people. We also hosted a group who were piloting the Governments new National Citizenship Service project, a programme with which we will be much more engaged in 2012 -13. The year saw a successful campaign to encourage FE colleges to use activities at the Lodge as part of their induction programmes. Kirklees and Middlesbrough colleges were but two of several who benefited from using adventurous activities to help young students to get to know each other through their shared experiences of the day. Our Holiday Activity Days have become well established in the local community as an alternative to child care for 8 14 year olds with attendance growing throughout the year. The Family Fun Day at the end of July was also attended by over 250 people. Through the dedication and energy of Miles Bradshaw the Carlton Lodge Bursary Fund was established. Carlton Lodge was selected by Ladbrookes Northallerton Branch as their charity of the year, and we also received generous grants from many of the Lions and Round Table groups around the county. In September 2011 50 volunteers from O2 Telefonica carried out various tasks around the site as part of their Think Big programme. The relationship continued into 2012 when a second team converted the games room into a facility that could be used as a dining area, renovating the kitchen and preparing the old staff showers in the Stables to be converted into a laundry. Finally, as part of the staff reorganisation, we recruited seasonal facilities staff to replace our previous reliance on casual staff supporting the housekeeping and catering delivery. This was a great success, leading to improved cost-effectiveness and efficiency, as well as increased scores on evaluation forms. 2012-13 promises to be our busiest year ever and the foundations built in 2011-12 will serve as a firm base on which to build. Mark Faulkner, Head of Centre

YOUTH DEVELOPMENT TEAM


YOUTH CLUB SUPPORT This year we have continued to support our members by carrying out regular youth club visits, responding to leader concerns and providing useful resources. We have resumed our membership to Keyfund and continue to offer young people access to this funding. The nature of the support we provide to our 45 member clubs is always diverse, and this year was no exception. Our Fieldworkers continue to provide advice and support on developing appropriate policies and practices, and advice on access to the latest funding, resources and activities. In return, conditions of membership are followed in order to record and demonstrate the sectors provision of safe and appropriate activities for young people. This year saw a significant change in the way we report voluntary youth activity across the county as we made the move to using North Yorkshire County Councils Aspire database. The intention of this is to allow voluntary sector youth work to be recognised and recorded in comparable terms alongside statutory provision. Finally, congratulations to Richie Bastow, our Youth Work Apprentice seconded from NYCC. Richie completed his apprenticeship earlier this year and achieved a level 3 in Youth Work practice. NATIONAL CITIZEN SERVICE The team worked intensively from December to promote the scheme and secure expressions of interest from young people across York and North Yorkshire. Progress in recruitment by March 2012 was on-target. LOOKING TO THE FUTURE... In the coming year we will be mapping youth activity from all providers and identify potential areas for development. We will be offering further volunteer training and producing tools to help clubs improve their safety and increase their engagement.

NYY TRAINING
Our training activity has developed since we became an accredited centre with OCN. From January to March 2012 we delivered to 21 learners, with 3 learners accumulating the 10 credits required for an Award in Youth Work Practice. Lucy and Clare started an assessor course with OCN, and Lucy has also undertaken a Level 4 course to improve practice. We developed a short course as part of the Starting Fresh NEET partnership. As an accredited provider we can work with small groups of young people as part of their progress towards work, training or education. Our training programme and Starting Fresh work enables us to progress our aim of providing devlopment opportunities for young people and adults, and wil secure our status as a training provider in North Yorkshire.

TREASURERS REPORT
Last year, I reported that North Yorkshire Youth had suffered financially from the austerity measures that had been implemented by the then new Coalition Government. We anticipated that these measures would continue to adversely affect our historically core business in the current year, and we therefore undertook a root and branch review of all our systems and costs, with a view to increasing our efficiency and cost effectiveness. This review was completed, and together with the diversification programme facilitated by the Grant received from the Governments Transition Fund, has placed the Organisation in a much stronger position to succeed in the current challenging economic conditions. RESULTS The measure of our success in identifying cost savings and new business opportunities is the level of Incoming Resources from Charitable Activities shown on the Accounts. Our income from Booking Fees and Awaydays etc has increased from 414,134 last year to 458,069 this time, an increase of 43,935, or 10.6%. In these recessionary times, I believe this is a remarkable outcome, and I would like to take this opportunity of congratulating the Chief Executive and the whole of his team on achieving this result, and thank them for the enormous amount of hard work that has been necessary to reach this position. However, there is still much work to do. As you will see, the Organisation has still incurred a slight overall loss of 17,188 in the year, and this needs to be reversed in order to put the Charity on a firm financial footing. I am confident that the continued cost savings and new business will achieve that result despite the continuing harsh trading conditions. In the meanwhile, our Bankers, Lloyds TSB, have remained hugely understanding, approachable and supportive, helping us over short-term cash flow problems, and generally offering sensible and prudent financial advice, advice that has been reinforced by the continued support of our Auditors, Chipchase, Manners. My thanks to both of these organisations. THE FUTURE Trading in the current year is on budget, and I hope that we will see North Yorkshire Youth producing a surplus in the year. This is the result that we are all striving to achieve, as only by making these surpluses can we produce the cash we need to continue to improve the services that we offer to the young people of North Yorkshire and the wider area. Philip Triffitt Honorary Treasurer.
