We run a number of Youth Groups, some of which are open access and others are more targeted at certain demographics such as those with additional needs or are part of the LGBTQ+ community. In addition to this we operate a day service for young adult with additional needs that provides them with an opportunity to develop purposeful relationships and achieve personal goals. We also facilitate a community centre that hosts a number of other community groups and enterprises that benefit the local area. We do a number of creative programs and provide opportunities to help develop musicians and other kinds of artistic expression flourish through providing space for those to practice their craft.
