helping your young people reach their full potential
we run two youth clubs
Cleator Moor and Frizington
our commitment to safeguarding - in order to ensure “safe and appropriate activities” we have the safety of young people at the heart of all of our policies and practices. Throughout all of our activities, wherever they take place, we aim to maintain the safety and promote the welfare of young people.

we aim to make youth club a fun place for your child to come to but also one where they will learn and develop as well. This group is for 8 -12 year olds.
we have a concept called rewards for actions where young people collect ‘points’ by taking part in informal educational workshops and community tasks. These points are then ‘cashed in’ by the young people for trips and residential visits. This scheme is used to reward the young people for giving back to their community and from the learning gained through workshop participation.
our younger session is very much about play, arts and crafts and having tons of fun. We aim to plan different fun activities in each session to keep the young people occupied and most importantly trying new things and testing new skills.
our ultimate aim is to make our youth clubs a fun and safe place to come for your son or daughter but also one where they will learn and develop new skills as well. Our objectives have a focus on the personal and social development of the young people we work with, supporting and challenging them appropriately when needed.
we encourage young people to take part in the planning, delivery and evaluation of their youth project organisation through club committees and through their
attendance at public meetings.
rewards for actions was developed in order to provide our young people with the opportunity to collect ‘points’ by taking part in informal educational workshops and community tasks. These points are then ‘cashed in’ by the young people for free trips and residential visits.
this scheme is used to reward the young people for giving back to their community and from the learning gained through taking part in workshops. Workshops cover areas such as healthy eating, anti-social behaviour, online safety, social media effects, sexual health and community issues.
we provide opportunities for young people to gain nationally accredited outcomes that add value to their CV’s. These include the ASDAN & Duke of Edinburgh Awards.
