Space4All is part of our broader Family Hubs programme, directly providing young people with a safe space to socialise and spend time in their neighbourhood.

Most of the sessions are aimed at 11 to 25-year-olds, but we also have some junior sessions for 9 to 12-year-olds.

Space4All are free to attend, and the sessions can include the following activities:

  • Safe spaces for young people to relax and meet friends
  • Games and activities
  • Music and podcast production classes
  • Sports and active sessions
  • Health services and advice
