Selby Young People’s Community

Supporting, enabling & empowering Young Adults with disabilities to fulfil their potential

About Us

Our Mission at SYPCO...

is to enrich the quality of life for people with a disability.

Since we first opened our doors in July 2016 Sypco has been helping adults with learning disabilities, autism and promoting mental health wellbeing.

Our primary aim is to encourage our clients to develop key life skills. We do this through personalised instruction working hand in hand with parents, Carers and professionals to develop the skills required by the individual.

Our holistic approach ensures that our clients take full of advantage of the wide variety of opportunities that Sypco offers. Social interaction is an essential part of the work we promote, developing communication skills. This increases an individual’s confidence in many ways. Mental health wellbeing benefits from this increased confidence.

When appropriate we offer one to one conversations to assist clients to resolve concerns or problems they maybe encountering. We work alongside, and in conjunction with, professionals to ensure that our clients have the best experience at SYPCO.


Becoming a trustee. Charity trustees play a very important role in making sure that the charity is run in the interests of the people it is there to support. They strategically oversee the management and administration of the organisation. Being a trustee can be a very rewarding experience. If you feel you have skills and experience to make a difference to people’s lives, please get in touch.

Life Skills

Life skills

At SYPCO we offer a day opportunity that is more than a place to attend.  SYPCO gives people the opportunity to learn new skills.  Service users plan a menu together for the weekly meals, shopping and preparing fresh and healthy meals. Budgeting money, making friendships, developing independence and engaging in the local community are essential skills SYPCO clients derive from these activities.

Clients gain a new found independence and enjoy a wealth of interactive activities. At SYPCO we very much welcome our clients input and suggestions for activities, days out and social evenings.



At SYPCO we recognise the value organisations can bring to helping people manage their own health and well-being.

We are a group that supports people living with a long term conditions. We recognise that we have a very important role to play in helping people adapt and live with conditions that can be life limiting and by doing so, can positively contribute to a person’s overall sense of health and well-being.

A primary aim of our group is to empower individuals to adapt their lifestyles to manage day to day activities which require key skills.  Such skills can be the ability to do a task in the home or to be able to communicate effectively with others.

At SYPCO a primary aim is to achieve wide-reaching benefits for our clients which result in: better mental and physical health and give a greater feeling of self-worth.

Through Empowerment we increase the capacity of individuals to gain control of their circumstances and achieve their own goals, thereby being able to work towards helping themselves and others to maximise the quality of their lives.
