Our Groups

Open Access

Open Access is a drop-in for anyone aged over 16 who needs support or advice with housing, benefits, health issues or probation. We also have a dedicated Education, Training and Employment Worker who can help you find work.


Boxing is run by local residents and is intense training for those who want to keep fit.

Youth Work

We offer sessions for young people from the age of four. The sessions are an opportunity for young people to socialize in a safe environment, whilst also exploring themselves and the world around them. Through informal education and issue based sessions, we cover a range of topics. A lot of the work we currently do is prevention work and empowering young people to make informed decisions and choices about their lives, offering bespoke advice and support for each young person who comes to us.

Friday Coffee and cake 1.30-3.00pm

Women of all ages welcome to join us for great cake, conversation and choice of activity if you wish. A good place to make new friends and share interests.
