The Brunswick Youth and Community Centre outreach programme works with young people aged 8-21. This is how.

During school half-term and holidays we take young people away for activities such as:
Our local outreach activities are always free to the young people we engage.
We charge for the optional daytime and residential activities, such as those described above. Costs vary depending on the activity, location etc. Contact us for details.
The Outreach Programme is part of our commitment to Children and Young People.
