We provide youth activities through Youth City from ages 8 to 17 years. This includes educational programmes such as active citizenship, nutrition, gardening, computers, sports activities, arts and crafts. We also host educational programmes for adults (computers, home maintenance, cookery).
We have one programme, TAPPED (Technical and Personal Pre-employment Development) which is targeted at young unemployed men (18-35 years) from the Regeneration Area. TAPPED is a personal development course that uses car maintenance as a tool to deliver the project.
We provide space for a Public Health Clinic once a week; a Counselling Service in the therapy room and outreach service for those experiencing difficulties with substance abuse and their families (adults only).
