About the employer

In 1994, St Gregory's Youth and Community Initiative (SGY&CI) was originally founded another Archdiocese to meet the needs of the community in Liverpool. It provided an informal, friendly and safe environment where young people can socialise whilst developing their skills and learning. In November 2005 SGY&CI incorporated to limited company status, which was proceeded to adopt its Memorandum and Articles of Association in November 2005. The Church was closed after the Easter Holiday, April 2011 and following instructions from the Archdiocese from September 2011 the club changed its name to Netherly Youth & Community Initiative (NYCI), but our aims and objective remain the same: 'Enable members residing in Netherly and its surrounding areas, irrespective of age and social exclusion to participate in activities organised by Netherly Youth & Community Initiative. The aims and objectives are to provide social welfare recreation, educational opportunities and leisure provisions in the community with a view to improving the quality of living.' Netherly Youth & Community Initiative is operated from St. Gregory's Church Hall, which is adjacent to the St. Gregory's Primary School.
