(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 Bideford Youth Centre!

Where young people are encouraged to cook and share food, play team games in the sports hall, play and record music in our purpose built studio, make and create a beautiful mess in the art room or chill and chat in the youth rooms.

We have a culture of exploring food on a budget here and promote a sustainable approach to this where possible so expect to smell something interesting or unusual when you enter!
