Children & Young People

Our community development approach to supporting children and young people is needs led and puts their needs at the heart of our everything we do.  We work with individuals and groups to help them to identify what they need to grow, develop, achieve and enjoy themselves. We will support new projects and advocate and signpost so that they can access external services. We want our young people to participate, be creative, develop their own choices and become independent.
