The Grimsbury Youth Action Team are a group of young people Age 12 – 18 living in Banbury.


With a new energy and passion amongst the young people, the Grimsbury Youth Action team hope to challenge the negative stereotypes that can be affixed to young people by performing positve acts in their community.

To do this, they develop a host of creative community events, kindness missions and volunteer work for local causes. At the same time, they develop creative projects in the wider community to promote the Youth Action Team in Grimsbury.


The YATs aim is to make exciting and lively things happen in their community, using creativity as a catalyst. Through doing this the YATs learn various skills around running community projects, devising ideas that make a difference and leading their own events.


Could you bring new ideas to the table around creative community projects?


Do you want to see positive change happen in Grimsbury?


You don’t need to be an artist to join in; all you need is enthusiasm and a will to form a positive vibe for young people.
