Youth Zone

We are a no judgement Drop In Centre and service provider supporting local youth in our community.

Our Youth Centre provides a safe space for young people from 10-18 years to make new friends, build relationships, gain confidence, build resilience and aspiration.

There is a range of activities available such as pool, video games, a music area and chill-out room, just in case you want some quiet time. We believe hanging out with friends in a welcoming and positive environment is beneficial to our youth.

We provide 1:1 support through Case Management. If you want or need support, guidance or a willing ear to listen to you, our youth development team is on hand. You can be assured they will assist you with any issues in total confidence.

We also provide a range of services and support both in and out of school and in the local community.
