Our Children and young people’s project provides a range of quality activities for children and young people throughout the year. All of the activities are age appropriate and delivered in consultation with children and young people. These include craft sessions, fun and games afternoons, film evenings, and themed discos. We organise and deliver evening sessions during term time from Monday to Friday and extra activities during school holidays. The young people determine all our activities organised.
Our organised Residential’s provides fantastic opportunities for young people to participate in some adventurous activities, whilst engaging in team building, problem solving and social skills. Each activity delivered encourages young people to challenge their abilities and enables them to achieve personal goals These visits are sometimes a once in a life time opportunity for some young people. Young people experience being part of a team, making a difference, learning new skills and most importantly having lots of fun doing so.
We run the local youth centre and organise activities for young people of various ages. When the youth centre is open they can access the projects below, appropriate to their age:
