A SAFE SPACE FOR ALL YOUNG PEOPLE AGED 11+
This is our young people’s service, delivered and coordinated by them and supported by Reach4ward.
We run a weekly youth club for young people aged 11+ from our base at Machpelah Mill in Hebden Bridge. We are a safe, drop in space where young people can socialise, meet friends, take part in arts, crafts, sporting and musical activities, join our core group of young people influencing how the youth club is run, learn how to run a campaign and to support social justice across our area, nationally and internationally.
Young people attending can have a nutritious and healthy tea with us and there's a rage of snacks and drinks available.
There is no cost to attend.
We are open every Wednesday 3-30pm- 7-00pm [ except school holidays, though we often run activities in our local area in these times so look for publicity].
Future Plans are to deliver a dedicated night once per month for LGBTQ+ young people and to support young people to become peer mentors to support their friends experiencing a range of issues. We are currently seeking funding for these two new, initiatives.
Currently we are receiving funding from Hebden Royd Town Council, and TNL[ the lottery] to deliver our Wednesday night youth club.
