About Organisation

The Youth Club Sessions
Our afterschool drop ins are for year 7 and above. These sessions are free and young people can come and go as they please unless parents advise us otherwise.

Our evening sessions are organised by year group with a small charge of £1. The young people can take part in general activities as well as specific activities that are arranged especially or they can just chill out with their friends.

During all session we have a range of activities available including sport, art and crafts, outside games, pool/snooker, games, fun equipment and an XBOX One.

During our evening sessions we put on further activities. These include inflatables such as sumo suits and bouncy boxing. We also do cooking, competitions, online games in real time, toasting marshmallows and much more. We encourage the young people to make suggestion for activities they may want to do.

Half terms
During the half term and summer holidays we provide a mixture of longer drop-in days where young people can come and use the centre. Activities often includes water sliding, slip and slide and a BBQ during the early evening weather permitting. We also organise day trips such as a visit to Thorpe Park, kayaking, a visit to the skate park and splashdown.

Supporting Young People
Youth workers are on hand to support young people around a range of issues these include relationships including friendships, family, school and romantically. They also support young people around anti–social behaviour, drugs and alcohol, education and life choices. If a young person wants help youth workers will be on hand to support them the best, they can.

Youth workers are also able to support young people to access specialised services. For example, this could be a referral to drugs and alcohol support services they can also facilitate the young people attending these services.
