About the project:

Our aim is to offer a safe non judgmental space for young people to meet, access advice and information and build positive relationships with peers and adults. Our objective is to offer an after school youth café in the Arkell community centre one afternoon per week 4pm - 6pm where the school buses drop off young people that live in Forest Green. The young people will be offered a healthy snack and a drink and the opportunity to access the internet for homework support and talk to qualified youth workers who are able to give advice, information and signpost/refer if needed. We will also invite other organisations and partners to join us such as our local PCSO, Neighbourhood Warden and Stroud Youth Support Team on a regular basis.
