Bute Mills

Over one hundred years ago, this was a working flour mill helping to feed families across Bedfordshire – now it’s converted into an award winning space for the national charity Youthscape and opened by Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge in August 2016.

The £3.2 million project has transformed this five-storey building retaining the beautiful original features and adding the latest technology and facilities for Youthscape’s work with young people. Alongside our day-to-day work, Youthscape makes parts of the building available to external hirers.

About Us

Youthscape is a national young people’s charity founded in 1993. Our face to face work is with young people in Luton, but we share our approaches and ideas across the UK through training and resources. We’re especially focused on helping young people facing big challenges in their lives like being in the care system or dealing with a mental health issues.

In 2012 the charity had outgrown its old premises and began a campaign to purchase and renovate Bute Mills. Working with HOK, one of the world’s most prestigious firm of architects, and supported by companies, churches and the local community, the building has undergone a dramatic and impressive transformation before opening in April 2016. All funds from the hire of facilities go to support the work of the charity with disadvantaged young people.

Send us your enquiry and we’ll get right back to you.
