Children and Young People’s Services

We have developed a programme of personal and social development for children and young people. We provide opportunities for young people to enhance their abilities, develop key life skills, access space for socialising and develop citizenship, careers and employment skills. Our aims are to get young people healthy, socialising, involving themselves in positive activities, fulfilling their potential, speaking respectfully to each other, using appropriate language and behaviour and having fun.

Our services include:

  • Early Years - Community Playroom sessions (drop-in sessions for parents with their toddlers aged 0-5 years).
  • Play - Open access adventure play sessions for children aged 5-16 years (children under 5yrs are welcome but must be accompanied by a responsible adult aged 18+).
  • Youth - Services for young people aged 11-21years (Aged 25 years for those with disabilities).
