About Chinese Youth Participation Project
The Chinese Youth Participation Project (CYPP) is established on 1st November 2000 and is a city wide project building on the best practice of the Sheffield Chinese Youth Information Project (SCYIP) which was set up in January 1997.
The ultimate aims of the Project is to help the Chinese youth to assess suitable services according to their needs, so that they could obtain better quality of live in the community. Since the establishment of the Project, it has been funded by various funders including the National Lottery Charities Board, Tudor Trust, Lloyds TSB Foundation, South Yorkshire Community Foundation, Local Network Fund, Sheffield Town Trust, J. G. Graves Charitable Trust, Small Grant and Aiming High from Sheffield City Council. However, currently this project is lack of funding to support its services, therefore most of the services are rely on volunteers and support from the Sheffield Chinese Community Centre in engaging young people in the Project development and delivery.
