About Organisation

Somerford Youth and Community Centre strives to be a centre of excellent services to support Children and Young People. As well as serving our local young people here in Somerford, our reach is far and wide, stretching out across the Dorset area and out towards the New Forest. We pride ourselves in valuing all young people and aiming to help them overcome challenges of life. We champion the place young people have in our society and hold high regard for the fact that young people need to enjoy their youth; and so we base much of our work on a foundation of fun and excitement which is often lost or missing for young people in today's world. For some young people, struggles they face are borne from home with challenges occurring in the place where they should feel the safest and most secure. This is why we have taken the initiative to widen our work to support the communities in which our young people live. To this end we support families of our young people with community food projects, community meal times and bespoke sessions for parents who have pre-school aged children. At the Centre we also run youth clubs and youth activities and we have a gym which our older youth club members can use but is also open to the community to use. We also run other services for young people such as mentoring and mental health support and we have rooms at the centre that are available for lettings. Having such a wide arching programme further allows us to engage our young people in volunteering opportunities where we can support them in developing key life skills and skills for employment.
