What do young people think about The gap*?
"I always come back because it is consistent and I don't like change"
"Gap is my happy place and secure unit"
"A very sociable environment"
"Gap is my family."
"My enjoyment comes from the support... I always feel valued and when asked if I am okay I know it's genuine"
"Mentally supported through the hot chocolates- it gives a sense of warmth!"
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.
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.
AdaptED is our education project that looks to support young people who may have missed out on vital parts of their school education. Using volunteer tutors, we provide functional English and Maths tuition as well as help with CV's, job and apprenticeship applications and interview preparation.
