What do young people think about The gap*?

Well what can I say... you have been a great mentor for me through applying for work on numerous occasions and supported me through grief and challenges of my own mental health and well being. Always went the extra mile to see me smile again. J

A positive influence on my life and I am so thankful for all you do! You have not only helped me but my family too! Woohoo go gap!

It's been a pleasure working along side you. The energy for young people shines brightly as does the passion for partnership work. 

Our Projects

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.
