Youth Work

The YMCA Youth Work team caters for young people from the age of 10 and above. The team actively engages with young people in the local community to support both the young people and their families. Youth Work provides a fun safe environment where young people have the opportunity to engage in activities which encourage personal growth, develop life skills through voluntary engagement.

Daily Programmes

We offer a wide variety of programmes each day ranging from homework club to cooking. We also have a full size sports hall in which we use to encourage the young people to take part in a variety of sports and games.

Our daily clubs are free to all young people from the age of 10, all you need to do is fill in and return our consent form, which is available from the Youth Work team or you can download it below.

For further details on the clubs we are currently running you can find a copy of our timetable below.

Summer Project

Our Summer Project runs every year for the month of July. The Summer Project consists of various day trips including trips to Baysports, National Aquatic Centre, Jumpzone and much more. Places are limited and young people who engage in the service throughout the year will be given priority. Please check back in June 2019 for details of our next Summer Programme and a timetable.
