Who we are:

We are an organisation that works to "Empower Young People," whether that's helping them find their next steps in life, supporting them through difficult situations they might be in, or hanging out, playing games and chatting. We run various programmes including:

  • Universal Youth Work: Spaces for young people to relax and spend time chatting with friends and youth workers, sometimes focused on a specific interest like creative writing or gaming. 
  • Prince's Trust Teams: A 12-week programme for 16 - 25 year olds that really helps you learn about yourself, set some goals, get some qualifications and hopefully have a great time doing it!
  • Plus One Mentoring: A one-to-one mentoring system for young people aged eight up to 14 who need a bit of support in their lives.
  • Coding Club: An introduction to coding for computers, where you learn the basics and then make your very own game!
  • Journey to Freedom: A course that takes place over several weeks. It focuses on you and how you view yourself, helping you break down barriers in your life.
  • Roleplaying Games: RPGs like Dungeons and Dragons can be a great way to socialise in a structured environment, as well as loads of fun. 

This isn't everything we do. We also work with schools, churches and other organisations, but that list is a good, brief overview.
