COMMUNITY NEWS

GROUPS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE AT THE HUB

Hillfields remains committed to its roots as a youth centre and sessions run every evening for young people aged 8 to 25 provided by organisations such a Creative Youth Network and Wicketz in addition to specialist groups for young people with a disability such as WECIL

Young people at Hillfields are supported by Creative Youth Network to organise their own events. Activities include Cooking, DJing, arts, discussions or debates. 

Wecil ensure that young people are supported to develop skills to help them live more independently and make informed choices in a fun, safe and welcoming environment. Activities may include games, sports, arts & crafts, shopping, cooking, socialising with friends and day trips.

PLAYING OUT MAPLE AVENUE

Every 2nd Tuesday of the month from 4-5pm Maple Avenue is closed to traffic so that children can play safely on the road and residents can meet up with their neighbours. Play is vital for children's physical and emotional development and for their social learning and the street is a blank canvas that promotes truly child-led free play, providing important benefits over structured, organised activities 

LOW COST THERAPY SERVICE

Hillfields Family and Community Trust provide a low cost, one-to-one, therapeutic counselling service. We welcome anyone who has experienced parenting at an early age (under 25) no matter what your current age. We also welcome adults whose parents were under the age of 25 at the time of their birth or parents whose children became young parents themselves.
