Heritage Resource Centre
SCCYC has a unique Sikh-Punjabi heritage resource centre to share past and present heritage and preserve it for the future generations.
The Centre currently holds artefacts, reference guides, workshops and various learning resources which are accessed by local schools and communities. Future plans include expanding the centre to a national resource centre.

Project: ‘From Her Kings Are Born’
Project Completion: December 2017
SCCYC Northampton received a grant from ‘Heritage Lottery Young Roots Programme’ for its 18 month heritage project called, ‘From Her Kings Are Born’.
Made possible by money raised by National Lottery players, the project focuses on Inspirational Sikh Women from the 15th Century to present day.
The project enabled young people to explore, preserve and share heritage of the inspirational women and Sikh equality quotes. The project concluded with a heritage art exhibition and creation of learning resources, which were shared widely to celebrate the heritage and promote empowerment and equality to young women.
SCCYC is an organisation that works with young people to help them to learn and develop key skills in heritage: research, recording and creating learning resources using creativity and media. The young people involved in the project received project management experience and volunteering awards which will assist them in future careers.
SCCYC is a innovative forefront organisation that provides user led services. The youth club engages and actively involves young people in the design, delivery and evaluation of services. Heritage projects are their favourite, where they can have fun as well as learn key skills and address issues they face.
