We aim to empower you to make informed decisions so as to become active participants in your own life and in your local community. We work with young people aged 10-24 who live or attend school in the local area.

The central theme to our approach is fulfilling potential. We operate in the late afternoon, evening, weekends and day time during school holidays to provide a fun, nurturing, and safe space for young people. The service provides a wide ranging variety of formal and informal programmes including recreational activities and residentials. We also support and advocate on behalf of the young people on a 1:1 basis.

Our service aims to empower you, as a young person, to make informed decisions and positive life choices.

We offer a variety of youth work programmes, including Youth Arts, Outdoor Learning, Healthy living programmes, Drop in programmes and a Youth Café (The Beat). We also provide life coaching on a weekly basis and can provide support on an individual basis.

All of our youth centres are open and inclusive, welcoming all young people.

The jobs initiative programme aims to support young people 16 to 25 years to progress into employment or further education/ training by providing job skills support, short practical certified courses, life coaching to set goals etc., to best meet the young peoples individual needs.
