New National Headquarters

The National Executive Committee are delighted to announce that from Monday 28th September the national headquarters for the YCW in England and Wales will be located at St. Antony's in Trafford Park, Manchester.

The move, from St. Joseph's in Hendon, North London, is a major change for the movement having been in various locations in North London for over 50 years. 

Commenting on the new headquarters, Phil Callaghan, National President of the YCW, said, 'We are delighted to be moving to Trafford Park. The YCW has a long history within Manchester and our presence in Trafford Park marks a new era in our mission to reach out to young workers. We are grateful to Bishop John Arnold for allowing us to establish our national headquarters within the Diocese of Salford.'

Trafford Park is the largest industrial estate in Europe and therefore is an ideal location for the YCW to have their base. Fr. Joe Carter, who was the parish priest of St. Antony's for a great number of years and the industrial chaplain in Trafford Park was, for many years, the regional chaplain to the YCW in the Manchester area.
