Youth clubs are held in lots of different buildings and venues – they might be in the community centre or the local leisure centre, or there could be an outreach project near you. Youth Clubs are run by young people, so you can help decide on activities and how the group works. Youth workers are there to support the group, and if you need someone to talk to, they will listen and give non-judgemental, honest advice.

If your community would like to start a youth club, or want support running one, then please contact us to see what advice and support we can offer.
Please note youth centres are generally available weekdays from midday to 9pm, but as our youth workers also work in schools, and run youth centre sessions, you may not always be able to get hold of someone. Please try again later, or if facilities exist please leave an answerphone message or e-mail the relevant person.
