Community support

Funding level: £1,001 to £5,000


Giving young people aged between 8 and 16, a safe space to meet and participate in various activities. Our Youth Centre provides young people opportunities to engage in positive activities, receive support, advice and guidance and equip them with skills to help them reach their full potential. In the centre we have a music room, an art room and a main games room which has a pool table, table tennis table, XBOX, PS4 and various board games.
Catalyst Youth Centre has been open for around 18 months and has had over 150 young people try out our sessions. Over this period some of our equipment is in need of updating. Young people particularly enjoy activities where they can engage with our youth workers. This can take place through games of pool, games consoles and large group games using board games. Where young people and youth workers interact through positive activities has resulted in good relationships being built. Feedback from the local community has been positive and parents and carers of the young people that use our centre always tell us how much they value having a safe place for their children to go and have fun. To keep these sessions running we also need some additional support funding the sessional costs associated.
