Our Youthwork programmes aims to support, empower, and strengthen young people through a wide range of programmes and activities collectively known as “Youth Spaces”. We work to meet the needs and interests of the young people in our community, on a individual and group level. We strive to help each young person on their own pathway to witness their full potential, as we believe they should have a space that is safe and non judgemental. Each youth worker adapts an approachable and positive attitude towards each young person we support through a series of programmes such as Youthwork, our Youth Cafe, Plus One Mentoring and STEP.
We provide a drop in service for young people in the area with our quiet, safe space where young people can come in and be themselves, relax with friends or talk to someone if needed.
Plus One Mentoring
We provide a support network to young people aged 10-17 years old who are going through a period of transition in their lives, and may be in need of an extra bit of guidance and support.
The Support Training and Enterprise Programme (STEP), run by the YMCA, is a FREE training programme, that allows young adults to gain relevant and meaningful training and work experience while earning money.
You can get involved by donating, volunteering, fundaising or getting your company involved.
