Some centre based youth provision is delivered to specific groups of young people, such as Impact, our after school and holiday programme for Looked After Children within a specific age range in one local authority area. 

The aim of the sessions is to provide a safe environment where young people have access to informal learning opportunities and information and guidance around a whole range of issues meaning that they are better informed about life choices and the opportunities that are available to them.

Types of activity:

  • Sports and games
  • Arts and crafts
  • Play
  • Life skills workshops
  • Information, advice and guidance
  • Signposting

Impact is a service, which enables children and young people in similar situations to come together in a safe environment, where staff understand their issues and concerns, where staff care about the individual and where young people can have fun, and feel positive about their situation, whilst developing their social and emotional capabilities.
