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!
