What do young people think about The gap*?
Gap were there for me when I had no one and they are still here supporting me and motivating me. I have come along way and a huge part of that is down to every bit of support the gap have provided. When gap entered my life I felt valued and that I was being listened to for the first time in my life.
Gap is my safe space. It's always a warm environment... like my family away from home. I know if I need anything I can ask the team and they are there for me.
I look forward to online gaming with The gap* all week. It makes me so happy and the team always make me laugh.
Thank you for being my friends.
The Venue is our drop-in centre for young people aged 13-19. It is open every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from 3:30-5:30pm. It is a space where young people can come and hang out, meet others, chat, receive one free hot chocolate, play some games and access support.
Headspace is a support network for young people aged between 11-20 who may be experiencing issues with their mental health. Via our trained volunteers, we offer one to one sessions at times to suit them. The majority of this work happens in school. There is a referral process which can be found by clicking the button below.
Out There! is the gap*s street and outreach project. We look to be a regular street presence, engaging with young people and working in partnership with local community, council, Police and any other youth providers in and around the town.
The studio is based in the Venue and allows young people to explore their interest or passion for music. This can be through performing and having their music recorded, or learning how to use the equipment in a studio environment.
