Welcome to our Children's and Youth Services!

We want all of our children and teenagers to reach their full potential and experience fullness of life in body, mind and spirit. Through Open Access Clubs, Targetted Interventions and Schools’ Work, we provide safe spaces where they feel valued and we equip them with the tools they need to thrive.

From sports and games, to arts, crafts and residentials, we strive to inspire each young person to play a positive role in benefitting their local community. We also have informative conversations about mental health, drugs & alcohol, sex, crime, racism, money, employment, education, social media, and world issue and young people can have one to ones if they want to talk about things they are struggling with.
