Here for Young People

We provide a sociable place where young people aged 9-17 can meet peers in a relaxed space to talk about options, life choices and other issues affecting their daily lives. Youth workers are on hand to provide food and advice as required. These sessions are an easy starting point for individuals to access our smaller groups, offering more focused ongoing support, and also for the youth work team to spot emerging issues in this community.

Anyone wanting to join one of our youth clubs, or in need of other support, phone 01386 554713 or visit Brad at the Centre Monday-Wednesday 10-8, Thursday 10-3.
