(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 The Station!
We are here as a space for you to be safe, have fun, meet new people and get information and support on things you might be struggling with – or with things you just want to know more about.
Our main room has pool tables, the latest consoles and air hockey, all free to use! We also have a dance hall with DJ booth and music rooms – where you can record & make music, practice on our instruments/ learn to DJ. Our kitchen is fully equipped for you to learn new skills or just practice becoming the next best chef!
We have an awesome team of Volunteers here who run the sessions with the help of youth workers- you could volunteer here as well, just ask a Youth Worker for more details and to see if it’s for you. The youth workers, Alex, Rachel, Adam, Peggy, Chloe, Andrew & Donna, are here to provide you with a confidential service and if they don’t know the answers to your questions, they will help you to find them!
Our peer educators Tom and Brandon are a valuable part of the team, mentoring young volunteers and working alongside a team of youth workers to help design and deliver workshops and activities for young people.
Our Open Access Session
Tuesday’s 6:00pm – 8:30PM
This is a session for ages 11-19 with special educational needs and disabilities. We have a lot fun on Tuesday’s & a huge variety of activities, like cooking, air hockey, arts, parachute games, music and other workshops. We also now have an Xbox ONE! At the moment we’re focussing on life-skills & how to get on with each other (even if you don’t like everything about someone) to show that we are all unique.
Should you need more information, contact Alex referencing ‘No Limits SEND’
Wednesday’s 6:30 – 9PM
This is a session for school years 7 and 8. Come along and enjoy discos, cook, take part in competitions, face paint, make jewellery, skipping & lots more! There is always an activity to get involved in! It is a great opportunity to make new friends and learn new skills. It’s always a busy yet fun session with lots of noise and craziness!
Thursday’s 6:30 – 9PM
This session is for years 9 – up to 19 years old. It’s a chilled drop-in session where you can meet friends, talk to youth workers (about anything & everything), use our recording studio & take part in activities you want to. Otherwise, simply enjoy a safe & warm place to go! We’re currently discussing how to keep safe online and in our communities… as well as offering our support with information on lots of topics – you can get your C-Card here too & access free condoms. We love MUSIC at The Station!
For more information contact Alex referencing ‘Seniors Session’
Friday’s 6:30 – 9PM
This is our session for years 8, 9 & 10 – giving you a space to be yourself and have a chilled but fun time! We put on the activities you ask for, like sports, cooking, arts and other random things. The Station Youth Centre is a safe place where you can talk to Youth Workers. We have recently been discussing healthy relationships and can offer advice around different topics!
This session is quite new so you have the chance to come and influence exactly what we do here!
This is where a couple of youth workers are available out and about in the area to talk to young people who are chilling out with friends in their local place. We offer information, advice and fun activities to do wherever you’re hanging out. We are only just starting these sessions so if you would like more information then please contact Alex.
“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.”
