Due to the current restrictions in place around social distancing we have had to suspend our Connected Kids Club temporarily. We will be seeking to offer activities and support to local families remotely as best we can. If you need help or support please call our helpline - 0191 3410033.

We are introducing a packed lunch offer which you can pre-order here. 

Our after-school club for 8-13 year olds to encourage children to actively take part in fun activities in a safe and caring environment


These activities help kids to build social networks with peers and, as individuals, build confidence and self-esteem:

  • Growing their own fruit and vegetables in our community gardens.

  • Fundraising to enable them to plan extra trips and activities

  • Cooking for themselves and their parents and undertaking competitions like ‘Come Dine with Me’

  • Sports and dance using the centre’s multi-purpose ball courts and climbing frames

  • Homework help, digital activities, arts and crafts  and lots more centre-based fun.


Our kids also get the opportunity to go on educational visits to cultural and historical places across the North East. We can also access well-subsidised fun trips to places or activities such as the cinema, climbing wall, ice-skating and bowling. We make every effort, at least annually, to run a residential trip and at times can even be found camping in the community gardens at Meadow Well Connected!
