Our Projects

The Attlee Youth & Community Centre strongly believes that all local children should have access to a wide range of opportunities to support their physical, psychological and social well being and development. We are a fully inclusive provision, our work is influenced by the needs of the young people who attend our centre and all activities are supported to include everyone.

We provide the environment and opportunities for children and young people to engage in activities that will allow them test their abilities and boundaries in a safe and secure environment.

Our policies set out the values underlying Play and Youth work, and provide a context for our approach to Play and Youth work practices as well as Health and Safety.

It establishes the criteria which we believe underlie all high quality provision. It is based on principles enshrined in the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (ratified by the UK Government), and the New Charter for Children’s Play in the UK.

Our service provides:
• Play for 5 to 14 year olds; up to 16 years for those with additional needs; after school, weekends and school holidays.

• Generic youth sessions for 13 to 19 year olds; up to 25 years for those with additional needs; after school, weekends and school holidays.

• Girls and women only sessions for cultural reasons and to enable them to engage in the same activities as their counterparts without the embarrassment of being watched and judged.

• Volunteering opportunities for those who are 16 years and over: Young people from the AYCC also have the opportunity to volunteer at the Centre in all areas of its work including the annual Attlee Lecture, this is a very important event in our calendar. The event gives the young people the opportunity to develop their social and communication skills and to meet with people from a variety of backgrounds.
