Tang Hall Youth Club runs weekly in the local community centre for 11-14 year olds and has been running for almost nine months. At the end of the summer term the number of attendees had risen to 30. One evening there was a small incident resulting in the fire alarm being set off and a slide being broken in the play area. The Youth Club had a break over the summer while the play equipment was replaced. A temporary venue was used as well as our detached/outreach activities to continue engaging with some of the young people in the local community. We also carried out an informal consultation around future provision.
The Youth Club is now back in the centre and the young people feel their views and ideas have been listened to. Staff are happy and things are running smoothly again with good numbers in the venue that young people and their families feel is safe and suitable.
