Our weekly groups are at the heart of our activities for children and young people. They are run by volunteers and usually last between one and two hours.

In our groups, young people learn new skills, form lifelong friendships and explore big ideas through fun activities. Our volunteers support young people to shape the group programme for themselves, express their views and have a positive impact on the world around them.

We aim to make our groups accessible and open to all young people who want to join. Contact your local group to find out more.
