The coffee bar is at the heart of the project, where young people seek information and advice either informally or privately in the separate room adjacent. Young people can socialise, cook meals, participate in group sessions and attend events.
In addition to personal support we provide creative workshops, a music and recording studio and a digital arts department offering video and photography.
Our work is led by the needs of young people and can be extremely varied from helping to find a homeless hostel, write a job application, write a song or poem or learning to cook a meal.
The Information, Support & Guidance Office provides a free drop-in service, where youth specific advice is available around any issue facing a client. The Project aims to listen to young people's problems and help solve them together.
Often dealing with young people who face extreme poverty, adversity and despair, we offer positive relationships, support and creative options to all young people whatever their gender, sexuality, social or mental health status.
Grassroots is not just about keeping kids off the streets, but engaging them in worthwhile activity, making them resilient and giving them a meaningful role to play in society
