Quality in Action Award!
We were delighted to be awarded the Quality in Action Award by Action Together recently. It shows a commitment to quality assurance and continuous improvement to a range of areas, more below:
Free sessions still available!
If you run a youth club, play scheme or an education or community project, we want to hear from you.
Bookings are available daytimes, evenings and some weekends and whilst our primary focus is on young people we do cater for older groups as well.
And the great thing is, thanks to the way we’re funded, many groups can have their sessions for FREE or at a very low cost.
