YOUTH SERVICES

What we do

We work with young people between the ages of 8 to 24. We manage community centres on behalf of Sanctuary Housing and Concorde & Stoke Newington Youth Club  on behalf of Young Hackney. We also provide training and adult learning opportunities for those seeking employment, advice and support.

We provide a place for young people, that’s not school and not home, to support them to develop the services they need to increase their skills and confidence. Open to the whole community, our work focuses on young people who are not in education, training or employment to motivate and encourage them.
Ensure young people’s voices are at the heart of all the projects. We also work with young people identified by members of the community, youth support members and other organisations as at risk of offending.

Our objectives

  • Nurture a combination of personal and pastoral support.

  • Introduce exciting activities which can be performed in a secure, caring and respectful environment.

  • Provide a safe place for them to hang out, and caring staff to listen and support them.

  • Ensure young people’s voices are at the heart of all the projects.

Making a Difference

 

We work with all the children and young people to create an action plan that identifies skills they want to develop and the aspirations and dreams they want to achieve.

Young people are involved in deciding how the centre is run and in choosing, planning, delivering and evaluating all the projects.

Workshops

 

We’re developing our programme of activities. Some of these are listed below:

  • Interview skills

  • CV preparation
