Young People

We know it’s not easy being young, but we try to make it a bit more fun by providing a range of projects and activities for young people looking for “somewhere to go” and “something to do”. Whether you think you’re creative or not, and are aged from 12+, why not come along and try something new, get out and about, learn new skills or just hang out with friends. You can even gain a Youth Achievement qualification just for doing the things you enjoy!

Our youth workers and artists are friendly and supportive and can help point you in the right direction for advice and young people’s services in your area.
