Senior Session

Fridays 7.00 – 9.00pm

This session is for young people from year 9 up to 19 years old and is all totally free! Get that Friday feeling with Room 13.  We as youth workers recognise that after a long a week its important for you to have time to relax with your friends in a nice place and chill out.  Fridays at Room 13 will give you the chance to see friends and if you want to get involved with our programme of activities.  Most of what we do on a Friday is driven by what young people tell us they want with a bit of what we think you might like thrown in, we offer all usual activities you’d find in a youth club; music, pool, cooking/food, art and discussion around the issues that affect you.  We are a friendly team of youth workers who support lots of young people in many ways from housing and living independently to sexual health & relationships advice to moving into employment, education and training.  If you want a place to meet friends, get involved with activities or get some support Room 13 is here for you.
