D2 is a youth work project within the Newbiggin Hall Estate that is committed to creating opportunities to empower young people to reach their full potential in a caring and supportive environment.
In 1994, as a result of the Faith in the City Document, combined with the large number of young people visible on the streets, the church sought funding to employ two detached youth workers, who worked from an office in the Vicarage at St. Wilfrid’s Church.
The Project at that time was given the name Newbiggin Hall Detached Youth Project and it was agreed at the time that the best method of work was detached work. Within a year the detached workers needed more suitable premises and the local authority provided one property, a house in Eastgarth.
