Youth Provision

Last Modified May 14, 2019

We provide year round, targeted youth provision for ages nine to 19 with a focus on improving their chances of success and raising aspirations in the most deprived areas of Hertsmere.

We pride ourselves on being responsive to youth issues as they emerge, and always endeavour to provide support in some capacity.

We work in partnership with various organisations to develop and deliver projects that young people will enjoy and choose to commit to; where they can have fun, social interaction and develop a range of life skills.
