About FUSE

Shoreline Youth Trust is a non-profit organisation set up over 22 years ago to provide community services for the young people living in the Sumner, Redcliffs, and Mt Pleasant areas of Christchurch, New Zealand.


We have a long history of providing community based projects and programmes from this centre, all of which we have designed to meet the needs of the local young people and to fulfil our mission statement: 'to encourage young people to fully realise their potential.'

Our dedicated staff and volunteers have a passion to develop strength and resilience within our community and to see young people flourish through the building of positive relationships that can provide support and encouragement for young people and their families throughout their formative years.


Our main objectives include:

  • To assist in the positive development of a youth community and to be committed to supporting and nurturing the needs of individuals.

  • To provide events and facilities for young people, particularly in the Sumner/Redcliffs/Mt Pleasant area, which are relevant to their needs.

  • To link in with interested community groups.

  • To build healthy relationships with and between our community’s youth.

  • To ensure that all work of the Trust is accountable and transparent in nature.

  • Maintain relationships with the Christian Churches in the community.


We aim to achieve these goals throughout all of our projects/programmes:

  • Fuse Youth Centre, which focuses on maintaining our community centre to be available for and tailored towards young people.

  • In-Schools designed to engage with the young people of our community by being present in the local schools during lunch breaks and providing activities and offering support to staff where it is needed.

  • Holiday Programmes which seeks to run 8 weeks of holiday programmes annually, which are tailored specifically for intermediate aged young people.

At Fuse, we believe that all young people have the ability to achieve great things. Our goal is to empower them to take control of their lives, define their own futures, and make a positive impact on the world around them.
