Formation of YACHT 1979

The Charity, formerly known as the Youth and Community Help Trust (YACHT), was set up in 1979 in Bristol as a Registered Charity by Trustees from all the main Statutory Agencies, such as the Courts, Constabulary, Probation Service and Social Services. The first initiative undertaken by YACHT was the purchase of a Narrowboat, the Community Endeavour, in 1979 followed by another, the Community Spirit, in 1984.
