What's on for young people

Youth sessions online

We all have to stay safe at home because of the coronavirus but that doesn't mean we can't stay active.

We've created a range of virtual sessions to enjoy from the safety and comfort of your own home.

Whether you like music, dancing, cooking, quizzes, or just talking with our friendly your workers, there's a session for you.

Sign-up to let us know what interests you, and we'll be in touch!
