Weekly topical workshops are delivered by our team of staff, or from partner organisations on a number of issues including drugs & alcohol, violence, sexual health, bullying, political issues & active citizenship, positive role models, racism & immigration, and homelessness etc. Sports, cooking, arts & crafts, and other leisure opportunities are also on offer, as is regular support from staff for young people in need of advice and guidance.
Ripple Youth Forum – Monthly @ The Hub
Representatives of each youth group meet regularly to ensure young people are consulted on the direction of the youth services and the organisation as a whole. Responsibilities of the forum include the planning of summer programme’s, celebration events and identifying fundraising opportunities within the community. We believe this democratic approach helps to empower our members with an “ownership” over their community youth groups and also leads to more politically engaged young people.
