Village Square Activities

Provision on the village square is intended to give young people within the local community a sense of belonging. It is an opportunity for them to take ownership of the space in a positive manner, and remain in a safe and friendly environment.

There are fun and purposeful activities provided in which young people can choose to take part, as well as more thought provoking and themed activities/projects, where young people can have the opportunity to learn in a more relaxed way than they would during school, and start to take the lead on certain projects including the opportunity for volunteering.

Youth workers on the square are there not only to facilitate activities, but also build positive, professional relationships wit young people, encourage them to express themselves freely, and support them with issues that they may face. It is an opportunity to showcase young people to the wider community in a positive light.
