Many of our activities are focused around children and young people understanding and valuing their communities.  We take a multi-agency approach utilising the skills of statutory and voluntary partners including greater manchester Police (GMP), Sport and Active Living and Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, to support children and young people's health and well-being.

4 -12? Want to play?

Free and safe child centered play provision across the borough offering activities within local communities for children and young people aged 4 - 12 years old.  There are opportunities after and during holidays where children and young people can take part in lots of different fun activities including: arts and crafts, drama, trips residential and accredited activities.

To ensure the highest quality service, we are signed up to the Ofsted or Voluntary Register for all of our play schemes.  All staff are DBS checked (previously known as CRB).

On  the first visit the parent / carer must accompany the child / young person to the session and complete a registration form.

Children under the age of 7 must be signed in and out of the scheme by a named adult who is 16 years and over.

Places on session are issued on a first come - first served basis.

9 - 12? Feel too old for play? Why not come to our Junior Youth Club?

A range of free and safe young person centred provision across the borough offering activities within local communities for young people aged 9 -12 years.

These sessions support young people during the transition from play to youth club and help build life skills in an informal and fun environment.  The young people get an opportunity to take an active role in their provision which can include various activities such as cookery, trips and drama.

The sessions address issues facing young people in a fun and engaging way to give them the confidence and support to move through adolescence.  Staff offer a safe open environment that provides an opportunity for young people to seek advice, support and guidance.
