(COVID-19) update from Space*
We have taken the unfortunate decision to close our youth work sessions this week while we design our temporary offer for young people in our communities. We are working hard to make sure that we can still engage our regular users in all manner of exciting online sessions. We will also be reaching out to young people who receive individual support from us and agreeing the best way to ensure they don’t feel isolated. Stay Safe everyone.
Welcome to Georgie’s!
Georgie’s Youth Centre provides a unique & safe space for young people aged 11 – 19, from across the Barnstaple area. With a wealth of creative activities including, cooking, games, pool competitions, table tennis, music studio, outdoor games and just loads of fun. We currently welcome over a 100 young people each week and are working closely with young people to unlock their potential…
Our youth hub offers a number of targeted provisions to provide additional support to those who need it. With a lack of social provision in the area, we aim to provide young people with opportunities to make constructive use of their leisure time, raise their aspirations and choose a positive, independent lifestyle.
Facilities include a great space with lounge, music rooms, meeting rooms, space for arts and craft, a fully kitted kitchen where we young people get the opportunity to cook with fresh produce and a great outdoor space with the opportunity to play sports, games and BBQ.

“The staff are excellent because they have to put up with a lot of noise and they put on excellent activities- I would give them a 5 star rating if they were a restaurant or something!”
“‘No Limits has everything required for any autistic child anywhere: fun and games but also peace and quiet. Karaoke in the disco, friendly competition around the pool tables, sweet treats at extremely reasonable prices, safe cooking for the culinary lovers and hang-out areas for those who prefer tranquillity. Rest assured, the staff at No Limits never discriminate but instead welcome all disabled (young people) with open arms and (corny as it may sound) with an open heart.”
“Youth workers give out a really fun and chilled out vibe which makes me want to talk to them.”
