Positive Activities offers a wide range of services for Children and Young People which provides quality support; personal and social development opportunities; promotes their voice and influence, builds skills, develop their confidence and their acceptance and understanding of others. 

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.

4-13?  Want to play? Have Fun?

Heywood Young People's Centre offers free and safe child centred play provision across the borough offering activities within local communities for children and young people aged 4-13 years old. There are opportunities after school and during holidays where children and young people can take part in lots of different fun activities including: arts and crafts; sport; drama; trips, residential and accredited activities.

This gives the children and young people attending the opportunity to build skills and develop their confidence in a welcoming environment.  All structured activities are led and chosen by young people for young people and aim to develop their Social, Physical, Intellectual, Creative and Emotional (SPICE) skills.

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 aged 4 and 5 years must be signed in and out of the scheme by a named adult.

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

10-13? Feel too old for play club? Not old enough for youth club?

We offer a range of free and safe young person centred provision across the borough offering activities within local communities for young people aged 10-13yrs.

These sessions support young people during the transition from play to youth 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, drama, trips and sports.

These 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.
