Coronavirus service update
Our Youth Hubs and Adventure Playgrounds are now closed until further notice.
This has been a difficult decision for us to make because we know how much our services are valued by children, young people and their families, but we equally know how important it is to help keep you all safe.
We will remain in touch with the young people that need our help and support the most and we are also working on how our hubs and skilled staff can still be used to help our community.
If you're missing us and need to talk or require help or advice please contact us.
Phone: 020 8356 7404 9am-5pm Mon-Fri.
You can also e-mail us: firstname.lastname@example.org
