We provide weekly clubs, work in 4 local schools, run 3 holiday programmes, various camps, youthworker support at New Brighton Library, offer Mentoring, counselling, help run large Community Events, provide music lessons, parenting and pre-school support and offer Volunteer Training & Support.

We believe in the "fence at the top of the hill" rather than the "ambulance at the bottom". We'll never know the true effect our work has had on the lives of young people, their families, and future generations but we continue to grow after 25 years in the same community, working with thousands of young people.
