Organisation type: 
Geographical remit: 


We work supporting young people usually 11 - 18 year olds sometimes they are vulnerable or disadvantaged, sometimes they are looking for opportunity and development, sometimes they just need a listening ear.

Our vision for young people is to:

  • have a safe and fun space to meet
  • have opportunities to talk and discover meaning in life
  • feel positive about themselves
  • feel valued as individuals
  • feel part of a community to which they contribute
  • be supported to make wise, informed decisions

The young people tell us we make a difference to their lives. That we accept them as they are and are not judgemental, that we help them to think things through for themselves and aren't told what to do, that they can access help at their greatest times of need, or can have opportunities to help them grow as individuals. 


Activities and Projects:

  • Open Access: providing After School clubs and holiday hangouts in a safe space to meet with friends, have fun and have access to experienced youth workers for advice and guidance.
  • Mentoring: supporting young people in either one to one or in groups, both at school and in our centres, to develop their self-belief, emotional resilience and positive relationships.
  • Young carers programme - giving respite to those who are caring for a relative, providing the opportunity to meet with other carers, having fun in clubs or trips, and getting support either one to one or in groups.
  • Additional needs groups - having a club night and outings for young people with autism and down syndrome at their pace with organised activities that help with socialisation and independence.
  • Journey programme - supporting those who are Christians or want to explore the Christian faith, having a safe place to discuss 'big questions' of life or hang out with others who share their beliefs.
  • Youthlink - bringing together key people for strategy, supporting practitioners and volunteers who provide services for young people, and giving opportunities for young people to have a voice.
  • Personal Support - providing financial support from local grants for particular young people in times of greatest need.
